North Fork Championship VII

The North Fork Championship; an adventurous kayaking event that is located at the gateway of Garden Valley, the North Fork of the Payette River. “They said it’s the rowdiest white water event in the world. Maybe it is, but that’s just how we do it in Idaho.” -Ryan Bailey

Idaho has some of the most beautiful scenery. The quiet serenity of Idaho’s Mountain ranges are home to many peaceful locations. For outdoor enthusiasts, it can also be the source of wild fun! Garden Valley offers everything from kayaking adventures to hiking up to peaceful hot springs.

“It’s beautiful. There’s not many places left on the planet that have the attributes of Idaho. When I arrived in Idaho for the first time, and drove up to the South Fork of the Payette, I got on this wave and I parked there and I knew I was home. I ended up actually moving to Idaho. It’s this combination of wilderness and no people.” -Gerry Moffat

Press Release: Crouch Changes Fireworks Plans and will Develop a More Traditional 4th of July

March 12, 2017

Press Release: Crouch Changes Fireworks Plans and will Develop a More Traditional 4th of July.

From: Greater Garden Valley Chamber of Commerce

The Fourth of July celebrations in Crouch, Idaho are changing and working towards a family friendly environment. Past years have seen the use of personal firework escalate in the small mountain town and city leaders are changing that this year. Plans are underway for a traditional Independence Day that brings families to town with events, food and music for every taste.

Crouch will be full of activities throughout the day that include duck races, rafting races, children’s activities, vendors throughout town, lot of food, beer gardens and music.  The evening will include a parade with the highly anticipated “wet” section of the parade. Participants in the wet section of the parade enjoy blasting water on people watching from the sidelines. Anyone can expect to get wet by blasts from fire trucks and rafting company busses. Many from the audience are prepared for a water soaking exchange by bringing their own water balloons and super soakers.

Later in the evening several restaurants and bars will have plans for exciting bands, music and entertainment. The outdoor Starlight Mountain Theater will have performances from 8-11PM. There is going to be something for everyone.

Only one permit is given for fireworks and that is to Adam Nokes for the Chamber fireworks display. There will still be a Chamber sponsored fireworks show that starts around dusk in Crouch this Fourth of July, as in years past, however this year it might be even more spectacular without the side confusion of the illegal fireworks!

The street in Crouch where the fireworks have normally been set off is privately owned. The property owners have voiced that they don’t want the chaotic fireworks on their property anymore. People will not be permitted to shoot off fireworks – even legal, safe and sane fireworks – like they have in years past.  The Sheriff will enforce the trespassing/no fireworks ordinance in central Crouch as well as normal crowd control and assistance.  The efforts now are to re-establish firework rules following Idaho law.

A safe and sane Crouch 4th of July with emphasis on activities during the day, a town parade, and the Chamber fireworks display will be the supported plans of the Greater Garden Valley Chamber of Commerce.
