The City of Owensboro will have four different locations from which they are launching fireworks on Monday, including a riverfront display. The celebration will start at Smothers Park at 5 p.m., wrapping up at 9:15 p.m. with a grand fireworks display launching simultaneously from all four locations throughout the City.

To kick the night off, live music will be heard throughout the riverfront with performances by ZoCephus & FunkNasty and The Downtown Band. There will also be food vendors and activities for children and adults. The Owensboro Convention Center will again host their “4th Fest,” which includes free activities and entertainment to get everyone in a festive spirit.

At 9:15 p.m., the 15-minute fireworks show will simultaneously begin at four locations: Owensboro Riverfront, Centre Court/Shifley Park, Owensboro Sportscenter/Moreland Park, and Owensboro Warehouse Leasing(former GE plant).

The roof of the Locust Street Parking Garage will be reserved for anyone with a handicap permit to enjoy the fireworks from the top of the parking garage at no charge. Individuals with limited mobility who wish to view the fireworks display from the riverfront can access a free golf cart shuttle from 7-10 p.m. from the Locust Street Parking Garage.

For the safety of the public and the pyrotechnic professionals, the three sites away from downtown will not be open to the public. People attempting to watch from the launch sites will cause the fireworks at that location to be halted.

Viewers can tune in to 92.5 FM WBKR to listen to the soundtrack with which the fireworks are choreographed.
