PERMITS GRANTED 6-15-16 LMS
Two annual events sponsored by the Calvary Church were granted special event permits by the Salmon City Council at its June 15th meeting.
The church’s free lunch and musical entertainment has become part of the Salmon River Days tradition and with city permission will take place again this year on Church Street between Shoup and Shanafelt streets. The street will be closed from 8AM to 2PM and the music will begin at noon. The 4th of July falls on a Monday this year so the Calvary Church celebration will happen on Friday July 1st. Based on past years the church estimates an attendance of from 400 to 600 people.
The City Council approved another special event permit, this one for Calvary Church’s annual “Rock the River.” The event will feature live music in Veterans Memorial Park from 5 to 10 PM every evening August 8th through the 13th and from 9AM to 1 PM on Sunday, August 14th. Between 200 and 400 people are expected.
The council heard from Breann Green that this year’s “River Fest” was very successful. She said the music was great and that around 35 boats floated the river from Shoup Bridge to Tower Creek. She said a lot of people attended the event.
Her comments came at the end of a monthly progress report from the Salmon Whitewater Park Association (SWPA). Proceeds from the yearly River Fest event go towards the association’s drive to build a whitewater park in the Salmon River adjacent to Island Park.
Green said the association has been working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game on plans to incorporate juvenile fish passage into the park’s design. She said that is the biggest hurdle.
Green also said the SWPA/City Council work session discussion on Phase II park plans went very well and that everyone is planning to meet again sometime in August.
