Mayor Rebecca Casper
The city serves as a hub to all of eastern Idaho and much of western Wyoming, specifically regarding health care, travel and business. Idaho Falls has established itself as a regional cultural destination. The Willard Art Center, Colonial Theatre and Civic Auditorium are home to year-round, diverse musical concerts, plays, and events. The greenbelt along the Snake River hosts many community events, such as the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, on the Fourth of July, the Roaring Youth Jam and the Farmers' Market, among others.
