The public can watch fireworks at several Indiana State Park properties, July 1-7. July 4th, Independence Day, falls on a Thursday this year. As a result, properties are hosting fireworks shows before and after the holiday. Personal fireworks are prohibited at Indiana State Parks.
Indiana Dunes State Park will have its fireworks show on July 1 at 9:15 p.m. CT on the state park beach. Bring lawn chairs for the show, which is hosted by the Duneland Chamber of Commerce. Food vendors and other vendors will begin selling at 6 p.m. CT.
Watch individual state park Facebook pages for any updates or changes based on weather in the days before each event.
