“Visitors from around the world come to Jackson Hole for the festivities,” says Wyoming Inn GM Mike Solis.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, famously celebrates the Fourth of July with a full day of events and festivities, including the Howdy Pardner Fourth of July Parade from the Rodeo Grounds to the Town Square. Crowds line the streets of Jackson to glimpse clowns, rollerskaters, classic cars, horse-drawn carriages, horseback riders, and even a sled dog team pulling a truck in the old-fashioned spectacle. The mid-morning parade is only one event in the all-day lineup of Western-style Fourth of July fun, and proper planning can help visitors get the most out of the day, according to the insider Jackson travel experts at the Wyoming Inn. To help Fourth of July guests avoid holiday traffic snarls, the popular in-town lodging, which recently completed a $4.5 million remodel, will provide a complimentary shuttle.
“The Fourth of July Celebration is one of the top events in Jackson,” says Wyoming Inn General Manager Mike Solis. “Each year, visitors from around the world come to Jackson Hole for the festivities.”
This year, the Wyoming Inn will provide a complimentary shuttle to drop guests at the parade and pick them up after the event, announced Solis, who also recommends that guests bring a hat, sunscreen and water for parade watching. “The temperatures may seem mild but the high altitude requires extra sun protection,” he explains.
Festivities on the Fourth begin at 8 a.m., with the Jackson Hole Jaycees Pancake Breakfast to support the Fire in the Hole Fireworks – and end after the fireworks show at night for a full day of fun in Jackson, Wyoming. The day’s schedule of events includes:
- 8 – 10 a.m. Jackson Hole Jaycees Pancake Breakfast on Center Street benefits the Jaycees Fire in the Hole Fireworks
