ALL-AMERICAN FOURTH OF JULY 2022
Fireworks will soon light up the night sky as the City of Owensboro prepares for the annual All-American Fourth of July event filled with fun, food, and a celebration of freedom. The event will begin at 5:00 PM on Monday, July 4 at Owensboro’s riverfront and wrap up with a grand fireworks display launching simultaneously from four locations throughout the City.
“The All-American Fourth of July event is one of our biggest events of the year, and we’re excited the community will get to enjoy the celebration together,” Tim Ross, Director of Public Events for the City of Owensboro, said.
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 plenty of 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 PM, the 15-minute fireworks show will simultaneously begin at four locations across the City: Owensboro Riverfront, Centre Court/Shifley Park, Owensboro Sportscenter/Moreland Park, and Owensboro Warehouse Leasing(former GE plant). The four locations allow viewers the opportunity to gather at the riverfront or from the comfort of their backyards. Spectators can tune in to 92.5 FM WBKR to listen to the soundtrack to which the fireworks have been choreographed.
Additionally, 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 between 7 PM and 10 PM from the Locust Street Parking Garage.
Please note: For the safety of the public and the pyrotechnic professionals, the fireworks launch sites of Centre Court/Shifley Park, Owensboro Sportscenter/Moreland Park, and Owensboro Warehouse Leasing(former GE plant) 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.
