Every Labor Day weekend, Ketchum hosts the Wagon Days festival, an old west themed carnival featuring wagon trains, including narrow wagons actually used to carry ore, a parade, and even simulated street gunfights. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.0 square miles (7.8 sq km), all of it land. However, two mountain streams, Trail Creek and Warm Springs Creek, join the Big Wood River in Ketchum. It is in the Wood River Valley, adjacent to Sun Valley; the two communities share many resources and both sit in the same valley beneath Bald Mountain, with its World-famous skiing. The city also draws tourists from around the world to enjoy its fishing, hiking, trail riding, tennis, shopping, art galleries, and more. The airport for Ketchum, Friedman Memorial Airport, is approximately 15 miles (24 km) south in Hailey. The elevation of downtown Ketchum is 5,853 feet (1,784 m).
