Fireworks to be shot from floating barge just south of previous “Blast on the Bridge” events
June 15, 2020 – GEIST RESERVOIR, IN – City of Fishers officials announced that the blast location of this year’s July 4th fireworks show will be from a floating barge just south of the small island in the Geist Marina. Due to social distancing guidelines, the Fall Creek Road bridge will not close and be open to vehicular traffic.
The Geist Lake Coalition has worked with Fishers Parks Department to transfer responsibility for the annual fireworks show to the City of Fishers for 2020 and beyond. Sponsorships and donations to cover the cost of the fireworks will no longer be solicited by the Geist Lake Coalition. Any questions regarding the annual fireworks show can be answered by the City of Fishers by Sarah Sandquist, Director of Parks & Recreation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-595-3117.
