In accordance with the Back On Track Indiana guidelines established by Governor Holcomb, the City of Rising Sun will host it’s annual fireworks event and community yard sale…just later than originally planned.

Fireworks On The River has been moved to Saturday, July 11.  Starting at 7:30 pm, the Lions Club will be serving up some great summer eats and have plenty of cold drinks on hand.  Also, Chuck Brisbin and The Tuna Project will perform live with their magical mix of Rock and Blues.  Come early with your chairs and blankets.  Grab a seat along Front Street and our terraced riverbank.  The fireworks will launch at 10 pm.

The Golf Cart Parade will again be part of the fun.  Decorated golf carts will gather at City Hall (200 N. Walnut Street) and parade through town starting at 7:30 pm.  If you need decoration assistance, some supplies will be available at 7 pm.

In the event of a rainout, the make-up day for the fireworks is Friday, July 17.
