Like most small towns across the nation, Sandpoint has celebrated our country’s independence on July 4 over the years with a great show of patriotism and mirth. We reached out to the Bonner County History Museum and asked them for a few photos of Fourth of July festivities throughout history and they delivered with these poignant black-and-white photos from celebrations over the years. Special thanks to the museum for the photos.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
