Independence Day and Centennial Celebration Fireworks, Raccoon State Recreation Area
Start Date: 7/2/2016 All Day
End Date: 7/2/2016
Event Description:
Raccoon State Recreation Area will hold it’s annual Beach Bash and Fireworks Display on Saturday, July 2nd. The Fireworks Celebration will be very unique this year since Raccoon SRA will be celebrating Indiana State Park’s 100th anniversary and the State of Indiana’s 200th anniversary!

Visitors are invited to cap off the day with an evening of fireworks beginning at dusk.  The fireworks are co-sponsored by Raccoon SRA, the Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department and the Raccoon Lake/Union Township Property Owners Association.   

The cost of the fireworks is supported solely by donations from the community and park visitors. Anyone interested in helping to defray the cost of the Fireworks Display are encouraged to contact Mike Clingerman, Raccoon SRA property manager or Ross Plotkin, interpretive naturalist at 765-344-1412.​

Raccoon State Recreation Area is located on U.S. Hwy. 36 in Parke County, west central Indiana, 50 miles west of Indianapolis and 35 miles northeast of Terre Haute.

This activity is a part of our 2016 "100 Days for 100 Years" Summer Centennial Celebration. To find other "100 Day" events, enter the keyword "centennial." Visit to see ways that you can celebrate with us all year.
