Huntsman Springs to host July 4 event
An eastern Idaho real-estate company will host an early Independence Day celebration in Driggs, Idaho on June 30.
Huntsman Springs, a golfing community and resort owned by Jon Huntsman Sr., is hosting the Celebrate America event on June 30.
The event, which will begin at 11:30 a.m., will include a street carnival, magicians, a hypnotist, live music and an air show during the day, with a fireworks show starting at 10 p.m., according to the event’s website.
According to a press release from the resort, the event’s organizers have planned old-fashioned street fairs, appearances by local food vendors and events for people of all ages during the day. The evening show’s live music and special guest’s speech will take place before the fireworks show. Last year, the event hosted a national talk show host Glenn Beck, who gave a patriotic tribute to the United States of America.
This year’s headliners include Jon Huntsman and his son, Jon Huntsman Jr., who was a Republican presidential candidate for the 2012 elections. Other main stage attractions include the Joe Muscolino Band, a group that performs music from many different genres and decades. The event will be free to the public.
Huntsman Springs donates a portion of its profits to the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. John Huntsman Sr., who is a cancer survivor, founded the cancer research institute in 1995.
