News release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Mayor Henry announces Lutheran Health Network and Old National Bank as financial sponsors for Fourth of July fireworks event
(June 3, 2015) – Mayor Tom Henry today announced Lutheran Health Network and Old National Bank will serve as financial sponsors for the Fourth of July fireworks display in Fort Wayne.
Lutheran Health Network and Old National Bank each will contribute $20,000 per year for the next three years.
The Indiana Michigan Power Center in downtown Fort Wayne will again be the location for this year’s show on Saturday, July 4.
The Fort Wayne TinCaps will be hosting a baseball game that evening. The fireworks planned for Parkview Field will now be part of the fireworks being released from the Indiana Michigan Power Center. Individuals with tickets to that evening’s game will be able to enjoy the fireworks from their seats at the ballpark.
The fireworks show is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. If the TinCaps game is not completed by 10 p.m., the fireworks will begin immediately following the conclusion of the game.
“We’re looking forward to another successful fireworks show as we come together to provide activities for residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Mayor Henry. “Our community is fortunate to have partners like Lutheran Health Network, Old National Bank, the Fort Wayne TinCaps and Indiana Michigan Power who are willing to contribute to important causes to enable us to continue the momentum and excitement we’re experiencing in Fort Wayne.”
The City of Fort Wayne would like to thank Bill Bean and Indiana Michigan Power for partnering with the City on the use of the Indiana Michigan Power Center building. The City would also like to recognize Three Rivers Festival officials for allowing a fireworks display in downtown so close to the Three Rivers Festival fireworks show in mid-July.
