NEWBURGH, Ind. (WFIE) - Newburgh Fireworks and Evening in the Park has been moved to another location due to the rising Ohio River.

Viewers can now watch from the Newburgh Junior Baseball League Mulzer Fields on 662.

However, there’s no public parking at the fields.

“For parking, we have a couple of different options,” Amber Kelly said, event coordinator for Historic Newburgh. “If you’d like to take a shuttle we just remind everyone to remind early. We have four shuttles that each hold 42 people. You can park at Lou Dennis Community Park or Newburgh Elementary School. If you want to walk and don’t mind a little bit of a walk, it’s just over a mile to walk from Newburgh Elementary School to here.”

Fireworks are the main attraction, but far from the only thing happening on Saturday.

“Starting at 4 o’clock we have a beer garden from Myriad Brewery,” Kelly said. “We have about 15 different food trucks, they’ll be in the gravel parking lot here at the ball field. We’ll have some music, and then between 8 and 8:15 just when it’s dark enough we’ll light the fireworks off, and the show is about 22 minutes long.”

Spectators will not be allowed on the baseball field, but rather a large grass field just west of the baseball diamond, located at 9511 State Road 662 in Newburgh, across the street from Casey’s General Store.

Spectators are also invited to park at any public parking area in Newburgh, but shuttles will only be available at Lou Dennis Community Park and Newburgh Elementary School.

The national anthem plays at 7:30 p.m. and fireworks start roughly at 8 p.m.
