The event is free to attend. Joe Kraft Park is located off West Seventh Street.
FIREWORKS PERMITS REQUIRED
Board of Works President Warren Nash said he’s noticed only a few of the vendors in New Albany have appeared before the body requesting a permit to sell fireworks.
City Attorney Stan Robison said that’s a violation of New Albany’s codes.
“They’re supposed to come to this board for approval of any firework sales,” he said.
However, with only a few days remaining in the summer fireworks season, Robison said really the only option is to send letters to the vendors the city knows are in violation of the rule.
