It's been a wet and soggy July 4th. With anywhere between two and six inches of rain falling across the Tri-State, and more forecast to fall as the day rolls on, the fate of Evansville's annual riverfront fireworks show is up in the air. However, the Growth Alliance for a Greater Evansville (GAGE), organizers of the annual display, say the show will go on, with one exception.

In a Facebook post just before 11:30 a.m. the local organization announced the display will continue as scheduled unless severe weather enters the area.


The annual display has become one of the biggest in the Midwest and draws anywhere between 35,000 to 40,000 people to the riverfront.
