The 2013 Fourth of July Celebration in McCall was another huge success! We had record-setting visitors to our area and many of our local business set new all-time sales records during this festive event. This year we opted to promote a full 10 days of events in the area based on the success of our 2012 promotions. Between music festivals, wine tasting, family games, competitions, recreation, and art and cultural events, we were able to offer something for everyone. There really is something magical about bringing an entire community together to help celebrate our nation’s independence, all capped off with fireworks over Payette Lake!

One of the largest challenges this year was raising enough funding to cover the celebrated fireworks show. We launched a fundraising campaign in May 2013 and by July 1st we had raised over $15,000 – all donated by local businesses, organizations, and individuals. Thank you to everyone who made the 2013 Fourth of July in McCall possible!
