Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Daviess County Fiscal Court would like to announce several changes associated with the Independence Bank Fireworks Festival.
The event will proceed on Saturday, September 4th at Panther Creek Park. However, 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,” said Judge-Executive Al Mattingly.
Live musical entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. with the fireworks set for 8:15 p.m. Bring a lawn chair to enjoy the show.
“People are welcome to bring their own food and drink to the event, and take advantage of the park’s greenspace to spread out while listening to music on stage before the fireworks show,” added Parks Director Ross Leigh.
Parking will be free for everyone. And no dogs or alcohol will be permitted at this event.
Panther Creek Park is located at 5160 Wayne Bridge Road, roughly nine miles southwest of Downtown Owensboro. For questions, contact Daviess County Parks & Recreation at 270-685-6142.
