The organizers of the Rising Sun Stars & Stripes Celebration kindly request that our locals/guests use the utmost caution during the Saturday, July 2nd event held from 4 – 11 pm on Front Street in downtown Rising Sun. This includes driving slowly within our residential streets/alleyways as they will become high traffic areas for vehicles, golf carts and foot traffic.

DO NOT enter any areas that are taped off for your safety. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets and flashlights. Include a radio if you would like to tune in to our on-site deejay at 98.9 FM throughout the event. Coolers are allowed but NO GLASS IS PERMITTED.

The Dearborn County Water Rescue Team will be on the Ohio River should boating visitors experience any difficulties.

Be patient when leaving the event area after the fireworks and watch for vehicles, pedestrians, and golf carts.

On behalf of the City of Rising Sun, the Rising Sun Lion’s Club and Ohio County Tourism, Inc. we want everyone to have a good time and stay safe at the Rising Sun Stars and Stripes Celebration!!
