Silverwood cancels 4th of July fireworks show permanently
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — Silverwood Theme Park has canceled their annual 4th of July firework show because of safety and environmental concerns.
“We understand that our community looks forward to this event every year, but after some deliberation, we have decided that, due to safety and environmental concerns, it is in our best interest to cancel the show indefinitely. The fire season has had a huge effect on the surrounding areas the last few years, and if something were to happen during our show it would be devastating to our community.”
Silverwood says it will continue to decorate the park for the holiday and will be in full operation.
“We look forward to a great 2018 season and hope that our guests can still come and incorporate Silverwood into their holiday tradition this year and for many years to come.”
Silverwood is the Northwest’s Largest Theme Park, located in the panhandle of north Idaho. This year, the theme park is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
