The Independence Bank Fireworks Festival will take place Saturday evening at Panther Creek Park. Organizers call the festival “the unofficial end of summer,” and the free event includes food trucks, inflatables, live music, and fireworks.

Panther Creek is located at 5160 Wayne Bridge Road. The event will kick off at 5 p.m. with food trucks and inflatables. Live music will take place from 6-8:15 p.m., followed by the fireworks show.

Parking is  free for everyone. No animals or alcohol will be permitted at this event. Though there is an abundance of parking, attendees are encouraged to arrive early so they can get settled in before the fireworks begin. 

Daviess County resident Stuart Snow will serve as the pyrotechnic for the event, which is hosted by Daviess County Fiscal Court. Independence Bank is again serving as the title sponsor.

“Every year we look forward to this event. It’s all about being a part of the community and getting out and showing local love to the people we’re here in Daviess County with,” Susanne Story of Independence Bank said during a video announcement posted Monday by Fiscal Court.

Parks Director Ross Leigh said the event is a family-friendly atmosphere.

“Originally the concept was to be able to generate an event that we would like to bring our families to,” he said. “This gives families and the community an opportunity for a few hours to come out and to enjoy that Labor Day weekend.”
