If you plan to attend the 4th of July festivities along the Evansville riverfront, there are a few things you should leave at home.



Before you load the family into the car for the annual fireworks display along the Ohio River, there are some things you need to leave behind.

According to the City/County Government Website the following items are not allowed at the riverfront during the fireworks display:

  • Pets or animals of any kind
  • Water pistols, squirt guns or water balloons
  • Bicycles, scooters, skateboards, roller-blades (I would assume this to include hoverboards & segways as well)
  • Any item that can be viewed as hazardous. This will be at police discretion
  • Personal fireworks

In addition to the items banned from the event, it should also be noted that coolers & backpacks may be subject to search. If you see anything suspicious you are encouraged to notify a uniformed officer working the event or immediately call 911.
