It’s hard to believe it’s almost time to celebrate July 4th in Noblesville!  THANK YOU to all of our sponsors and volunteers—without your assistance, the festivities would not be possible.  Check out the event timeline on the right side of this page for more details, but here’s the schedule:  The parade steps off at 5pm from the corner of 16th and Harrison and will be led by Chuck Layton, our wonderful Grand Marshal.  Thank you to Community Bank for sponsoring the parade!  At 6pm, the free festival begins on the grounds of Noblesville High School.  A big thank you to Industrial Dielectrics, Inc.—the sponsor of this festival for many years!  The festival runs from 6pm – 10pm.  Parking as well as all of the games, activities, and entertainment are FREE!  The only thing that will cost money is if you buy food or beverages from our food vendors.  People are welcome to bring a picnic dinner, but please note that alcohol is not allowed on school grounds.  The following will be selling food and beverages at the festival:  Culver's; Fat Daddy Food Truck; Kona Ice; Little Caesar's Pizza; Mrs. G's Taste of Home; Noblesville Sunrisers Kiwanis; and Wilson's.  At approximately 10pm, the fireworks display begins.  Please note that no sparklers, fireworks, alcohol, or smoking are allowed on school grounds.  We hope to see you for all of the fun July 4th activities in Noblesville!

~ Volunteers ~
The biggest challenge that the Noblesville Fourth of July Festival Planning Committee faces each year is finding enough volunteers to staff the festival and parade. Please consider donating two hours of your time to help make this event a success. Most volunteer shifts are from 3:30pm - 5:30pm, 6pm – 8pm, or 8pm – 10pm. Volunteers still have plenty of time to enjoy the Festival and the fireworks with their family and friends before or after their shift.
 
All volunteers receive a voucher for a free meal at the festival. Also, all volunteers receive a raffle ticket for a volunteers-only raffle with great prizes!  Many different opportunities are available—everything from setup assistance to monitoring the kids’ activities and more. For questions or to request more information about volunteering, contact Cindy at (317) 770-2007 or via email at cbenedict@noblesville.in.us.
