4th of July Safety Tips:

Be mindful of closures and one-way signage. Be patient. Obey traffic officer’s direction, (pedestrians and bicycles too, please). Keep children back from parades floats, horses and vehicles.

Street Closures: Be mindful of closures. It will be posted several days in advance. Please don’t make us tow your car. There will be street closures on the town square and along the parade route on the morning of the 4th.  Closures will be posted several days in advance.  Please pay attention and move your vehicles or we may have to tow them. Use alternate routes to get around street closures.  Movement from east to west in the down town area will be a challenge in the morning hours.  Using Gill Street via the truck route will be the best option.  Please be patient, drive safe, and consider alternate forms of transportation.

Parade:  The parade will takes it's usual route from Snow King to Glenwood to Broadway starting at  10:30 am.  Snow King will be closed from Flat Creek to Millward this year to accommodate parade floats and entries.  Make sure your vehicles are moved from the parade route and that you leave plenty of room for the parade to get past.  If you have children, make sure they stay a safe distance back.

Firework Viewing: Fireworks will be set off at the base of Snow King as always, but can be viewed from just about anywhere in town with a good view of the mountain. If your walking, wear clothes that can be seen, (reflective, glow-sticks or flashlights).  Personal fireworks are illegal in Teton County.  You can be fined and your fireworks seized for setting them off.

Pets & Fireworks: Keep your pets leashed. There are always a few dogs that run off because they get scared.

Drinking: Please moderate consumption. We don’t want to take you to jail, but if we can’t get you home it’s our only option. Don’t drink and drive. Have a designated driver or take a cab, Uber or walk…assuming you’re not too drunk to do so.

Good choices if floating Flat Creek: Stay off private property. Don’t consume alcohol, (open containers prohibited in the TOJ).

Bikes / be aware of bikes….bikers obey rules: Bikes must obey the same rules as cars. If you’re riding at night, make sure you have a light and a rear reflector or light.
