The Thunder Over Patoka Fireworks Show has been Rescheduled

We hate to rain on anyone’s parade, but with mother nature’s insistence, it’s necessary to be the bearer of bad news.

The fireworks show scheduled for this evening, of Saturday, July 1st of 2023, at Patoka Lake Beach have been canceled due to the potential for severe storm weather this afternoon and evening.

The National Weather Service Louisville, KY Office, is predicting another round of potentially severe storms anticipated to begin late in the afternoon and continue into the evening, predominantly around the planned showtime of 10 PM.

Fortunately, a make-up date has been determined and you won’t have to wait long!

The THUNDER OVER PATOKA fireworks shoe will be moved to Monday, July 3rd at 10 PM Eastern.
