Daviess County Fiscal Court announced several changes for the Independence Bank Fireworks Festival at Panther Creek Park, citing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The event is still on for Sept. 4 at Panther Creek, but many of the activities accompanying the fireworks will be scaled back, in accordance with health and safety protocols.
“This year, due to the pandemic, we will not offer pony rides, inflatables, or any food vendors, and park staff will remove the bleachers commonly placed in front of the musical stage,” Judge-Executive Al Mattingly said.
Live musical entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. with the fireworks set for 8:15 p.m. Attendees may bring lawn chairs.
Daviess County Parks Director Ross Leigh said people are welcome to bring their own food and drink to the event, and take advantage of the park’s green space to spread out while listening to music on stage before the fireworks show.
Parking will be free for everyone. No dogs or alcohol will be permitted at this event.
Panther Creek Park is located at 5160 Wayne Bridge Road. For questions, contact Daviess County Parks & Recreation at 270-685-6142.
