We're not wandering far this week, because Fortville is totally where it's at this weekend! We're kind of known for our July 4th fireworks display. Each year people comment on it and say WOW I never knew and we're so coming here every year now! I find it funny that people seem to think just because we're a small town, our celebration of our nation's birthday would be small too. Nope, not in #fabFortville! We do it up right.
This year it gets even better. The fireworks display is set for July 2nd, which allows you to enjoy here first, then fireworks on the 3rd at Saxony and on the 4th at maybe Blast on the Bridge in Geist or downtown Indy or even CarmelFest. Fireworks three nights in a row! Genius!
Okay so here's the 411 on Fortville's celebration brought to you by The Fortville/McCordsville Chamber, The Town of Fortville and main sponsor Fireboulder, which includes a parade again this year! Get your bike directions ready kiddos! Line-up starts at 5:00 p.m. and the parade kicks off at 6:00 p.m. There will be prizes!
Different parade route this year. Check it out.
Food vendors galore! Or pack a blanket and your own picnic! Either way Landmark Park will be hopping from 5p.m. on!
What: Fortville July 4th Celebration
When: July 2nd kicking off with a parade at 6 p.m.
Where: Landmark Park
Lastly, putting a show of this size is costly. The organizers are taking donations from area businesses and individuals right now. You can drop off your donation at the Fortville Greenfield Banking Company location. Just let them know it's for the fireworks account.
Oh and what else should your long July 4th weekend include? A dip at the awesome Waterpark at the Monon Center in Carmel! One of our most favorite local Waterparks! Check it out, you'll fall in love too. So much to keep everyone busy and happy, from slides, lazy river, zero entry pool, FlowRider and an enclosed smaller kids area. Give it a whirl.
