July 4th – Wilder
Can you believe it? The 4th of July is almost here! There are several celebrations around the Treasure Valley! Here’s information about Wilder on the 4th!
I grew up in a small town (Soda Springs) and the 4th of July was always a big deal for our community. Wilder is just one of those type towns in the valley with a down-home feel and celebration on Independence Day, July 4.
