Celebrate the Fourth of July in Ann Morrison Park

June 26, 2024

Celebrate Independence Day at beautiful Ann Morrison Park with the City of Boise! The community is invited to spend the evening at the park and enjoy the free fireworks show synced to music on 107.1 Hank FM. Fireworks are scheduled to fill the sky starting at 10:15 p.m. (dusk) on the Fourth of July, but festivities in Ann Morrison Park begin at 6 p.m.

Food and drink vendors will be on site with concessions available for purchase throughout the evening. This year's food trucks feature a variety of sweet treats, fresh fusion foods, and summertime classics. Visit the City of Boise’s event webpage for a list of confirmed vendors. Beer and wine will be available for purchase for those 21 and older. While enjoying a picnic in the park, cool off in the Ann Morrison Park interactive fountain as the water feature displays red, white and blue lights into the evening.

“It’s always a highlight of the summer to watch an incredible firework display and celebrate our country’s independence with families from across the Boise community,” said Mayor Lauren McLean. “Bring a blanket and some chairs and enjoy the holiday safely while enjoying this treasured holiday in Boise’s backyard.

Ann Morrison Park will be closed to vehicles all day on Thursday, July 4, but people who plan to watch the fireworks are still welcome to ride-share, walk or ride a bike into the park throughout the day. Outside food and drinks are also permitted in the park, but no glass bottles are allowed. Thank you for leaving drones, pets, and fireworks – including sparklers – at home.

Those wanting to float the Boise River on the holiday should plan ahead since Ann Morrison Park will be closed to vehicle traffic all day. Floater services are open and available on the holiday. Shuttles from Ann Morrison Park to Barber Park will run from noon to 7 p.m. but people cannot park in Ann Morrison Park. People should make plans to carpool and park at Barber Park (limited parking for a fee) and take the shuttle back after their float. Find more information about floating the river on the official Float the Boise website, floattheboise.org.

Additional details about parking and road closures around the park are posted on the city’s Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration website. Accessible parking will be available within the park for individuals with a placard. View an event map of Ann Morrison Park here.

After the fireworks show, Americana Boulevard will be closed for approximately 45 minutes to allow pedestrians to exit the park. It can be helpful to bring a flashlight to help see your way out of the park. Boise Police officers will assist pedestrians and will also staff closures to make sure everyone gets home safely.

Attending the City of Boise’s free fireworks celebration is a great way to enjoy the holiday safely. The professional show follows all necessary protocols and a Boise Fire Department safety inspector is on site at all times.
