Geist Marina Fireworks Details

While the annual Blast on the Bridge event has been a popular viewing area for the fireworks, the City of Fishers is not continuing with the event except for the fireworks show. Fall Creek Bridge will not be available for viewing. Additionally, the following modifications to the event space will take place to ensure the businesses in the Marina are able to operate and safety is maintained for all Geist residents.

• Fall Creek Bridge will remain open to vehicular traffic leading up to and during the fireworks show
• Fall Creek Bridge sidewalk will close at 9 pm. Security personnel will roam the bridge ahead of the closure to ensure there is no placement of chairs or pedestrians stationed on the bridge.
• Parking passes will be distributed to neighborhoods that may be affected by non-residents looking for somewhere to park.

    how would we watch the show at the reservoir?

    This is a ridiculous plan!!! I love that I can watch from my dock and get a great view. But what a horrible plan to not open this up to other viewers. as in the past. The boat party on the lake for fireworks was such a great tradition, and the party on the bridge was a new tradition. And why split fireworks on Geist to 2 locations?? Please use your resources to continue with greater fireworks in one location.

    So I guess the old days of patriotic music and huge crowds is over, huh? A “non-viewing event” makes absolutely NO sense to me, particularly since we’re talking about a 3-hour period on one day of the year. Those of us who don’t own boats are basically screwed. Great plan . . .
