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.

After the parade, make your way to Wood River Land Trust’s popular Draper Wood River Preserve and Lions Park for some sun and family fun. Enjoy food, music, face-painting, educational nature programs, craft vendors, and more. This year live music will feature local favorites Up A Creek and Swagger.
