WHITESTOWN — There will be a Fourth of July fireworks show in Whitestown this year, although it will actually be on July 3.

The Boone County community will scale things back from previous years, due to COVID-19 concerns.

“Out of abundance of caution and care for our community, we have decided to modify our Independence Day celebration this year,” said Whitestown Parks Director Savannah Solgere. “We will not be having a kids zone, food vendors and live music like past years, but we are still providing our residents with a fantastic fireworks show.”

Fireworks will be launched at 10 p.m. from Eagle Church on South Main Street, but no spectators are allowed on the church campus. The fireworks will also be livestreamed on the Town’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

“We encourage our residents to celebrate safely with their families,” said Solgere. “The fireworks will be launched 100 feet higher this year to give residents a better view from their homes. We hope to resume our traditional celebration in 2021.”
