Coeur d'Alene has a lot to offer for the Fourth. Friday's Coeur d'Alene American Heroes Fourth of July Parade starts at 11 a.m. on Sherman Avenue at 15th Street and runs west to Government Way. There will be music and vendors at City Park from 1-9:30 p.m. There will also be a pie-eating contest at 3:30 p.m. and kids activities at the park. The fireworks show over Lake Coeur d'Alene starts at dusk between 9:45 and 10 p.m. The parade generally has between 75 and 90 entries and that many are expected again. Tom Norris, a Medal of Honor recipient, will be the parade grand marshal. Serving in Vietnam as a Navy SEAL, Norris completed a ground rescue of two downed pilots deep within heavily-controlled enemy territory/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
