Bergdahl celebration set for June 28

Event is now themed "Bowe is Back"


The Wood River Valley will celebrate the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in an event called "Bowe is Back" on Saturday, June 28, from 1-5 p.m. at Hop Porter Park in Hailey. 

The event was going to be called "Bring Bowe Back" but the name and the theme were changed after the soldier from Hailey was released from captivity in Afghanistan on Saturday.

Event co-organizer Debbie Oneill said Bergdahl's parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, will speak at the event. In addition, singer-songwriter Carole King will perform. Idaho Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, will be the keynote speaker.

The event will feature activities for children and food will be served.
