Preston Idaho and Franklin County
There’s something for everyone here in Preston, from the arts to the outdoors. We enjoy our hometown environment. As we grow, we are finding ways of preserving the variety of wildlife that resides in the mountains, fields and reservoirs around us, the family owned businesses and the quiet neighborhoods.
THAT FAMOUS PRESTON NIGHT RODEO! During the first weekend of August on Thursday through Saturday, Preston presents That Famous Preston Night Rodeo. Come downtown for the city-wide sidewalk sales, Craft, Vendor and Antique Fair on State Street and the Rodeo Parade.
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS is held on the Friday night following Thanksgiving. The night features a lighted parade, fireworks, and a spectacular turning on of all the lights. The lights will stay up and turned on until the beginning of the new year. You’ll want to make the Festival of Lights an annual trip to Preston.
OUTDOOR RECREATION! Fishermen and water-skiers come from miles around to our nine reservoirs. Peaceful campgrounds and refreshing hikes are within an easy distance. Snowmobiling is a favorite sport in the Bear River Range of the Wasatch Mountains. Whether you are site-seeing or hunting the wildlife is abundant. Occasionally wildlife can be seen in our backyards and fields, but mostly in the beautiful mountains and near the many waterways. Scroll down to view a list of area recreation.
HISTORIC SITES AND SCENIC VIEWS can be found along the Pioneer Historic Byway that passes through Preston on Highway 91. We hope that you will get off I-15 and come visit our beautiful hometown of Preston.
