The 2018 Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, the largest Independence Day fireworks show west of the Mississippi River, will pay tribute to America’s veterans and soldiers with cutting-edge, high-flying pyrotechnics set to a patriotic music and messages.
For the second year in a year, the show will be launched from Snake River Landing in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The 31-minute program is scheduled to begin at 10:00 p.m., with soundtrack and spoken word broadcast live on KLCE 97.3 FM.
This also marks the second straight year that the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) named the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration one of the top 5 must-see fireworks shows in the country. The APA said the 2018 show is among “the most dazzling displays that you won’t want to miss.”
USA Today has also listed the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration as one of the best fireworks shows in America.
For the fourth year in a row, Forbes has listed Melaleuca as one of the top employers in America.
It was the “journey of a lifetime” for eight military veterans who traveled to the nation’s capital last week on an all-expenses paid trip courtesy of Melaleuca.
On Sept. 14, 2023, Major General Michael J. Garshak presented the Patriot Award to Melaleuca Director of Product Management James Andersen during a ceremony held at the Idaho National Guard.
