Hailey Days of the Old West Parade | 12 Noon
Over 80 enthusiastic parade entrants will march down Hailey’s Main Street for an hour and a half of colorful floats, rodeo queens, wagons and more.
Hailey Rotary Road Apple Roulette | During the Parade 12 noon – 1:30 PM
A most unusual fundraiser, the Road Apple Roulette is held each year during Hailey’s 4th of July Parade. Via GPS satellite, the parade route is sectioned off into 10,000 squares that are each designated a number. If, during the parade, a horse happens to drop a “Road Apple” on a ticketed square, the winner’s name goes into a drum for the prize drawing at the end of the parade. If someone purchases multiple squares, their name is entered for each square a “Road Apple” happens to hit. Tickets are $5 each and you can pick them up from various locations around town.

Hop Porter River Fest | 1 PM – 5 PM
After the parade, continue your celebration by walking to Hop Porter Park for some sun and family fun. Enjoy food, live music, kids activities, vendors, and local brews from Sawtooth Brewery.
Fireworks Extravaganza – The show starts at dusk, and can be seen from anywhere in Hailey!
