2024 Independence Day Activities

**UPDATE: The City of New Albany has decided to move forward with plans to launch fireworks this evening. Due to the possibility of rain, there may be the need to start fireworks earlier than normal. Please be prepared for the fireworks display to begin as early as 9:45 p.m.
