Idaho Central Credit Union, is thrilled to be sponsoring the annual 4th of July Parade in Pocatello. The theme this year is Celebrate America!
We are excited to announce that there will be a new route this year! The parade will start at 9am near Portneuf Medical Center and continue down through Idaho State University’s campus. This route will take advantage of some of the most beautiful streets in Pocatello and will be a nice flat or downhill stroll for all those walking in the parade.
Keep an eye out for new performers and fun surprises! Hear the sounds of the 25th Army Band out of Boise Idaho and watch for a special formation flyover by Avcenter Air Charter Services featuring their Cessna Citation Ultra jet aircraft and their King Air 200 turboprop aircraft. The flyover will commence at 8:50 am with the aircraft flying south through the valley and over the Portneuf Medical Center and down the parade route to the West. The aircraft will then fly the route in reverse and exit to the North at 9 am.
There will be great prizes for those entering this year’s parade.
- Best School Spirit – First Place: $250, Runner Up: $100
- Most Original – $250
- Best Business/Commercial – $150
