CALDWELL, Idaho — Fourth of July celebrations are on the horizon, and the City of Caldwell has announced its Independence Day schedule with events presented by the Caldwell Night Rodeo, now celebrating 100 years of operation in Idaho.

The day will kick off with a 7 am fun run at the Fairview Golf Course. Both 1k and 5k run options will be available to the public.

After that, it'll be time for the city's Fourth of July parade, which kicks off at 9 am and runs through downtown Caldwell on the route pictured below.

The parade will feature horses with the Caldwell Police Mounted Unit Foundation.

There will be several one-day road closures for the City of Caldwell’s 4th of July Parade. Road barricades and information signs will be posted.

The following roadways will be affected before and just after the parade:

  • Harrison Street between S. 6th Avenue & Grant Street
  • 22nd Avenue between Cleveland Boulevard & Stock Trail Road
  • Stock Trail Road between S. 22nd Avenue & Linden Street
  • Cleveland Boulevard between S. 22nd Avenue & Kimball Avenue
  • Kimball Avenue between Cleveland Boulevard & Paynter Avenue

Then an armored medieval combat showcase will be featured at Memorial Park from 11 am to 1 pm. There will also be a classic car show and vendor fair (for those looking to grab a bite) at the park, those will both run from 11 am to 2 pm. Memorial Park will also feature an eating contest from 1 pm to 2 pm.
The fireworks display will start at dusk at Brother's Park with select food vendors present at the celebration.
