4th of July Fireworks
One of the biggest events of the year (and one of the best fireworks shows you’ve ever seen) will be held in Owensboro on Monday, July 4 from 5-10 p.m. The All-American Fourth of July Fireworks will feature, not one, but four different fireworks shows spanning the city of Owensboro.
