Dazzling fireworks over White River light up 2020’s ‘Celebrate America’


Citizens Bank’s “Celebrate America” was held Saturday, July 4, on the banks of the White River in Batesville.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 edition of “Celebrate America” had some major changes from previous editions of the patriotic event. Masks and social distancing were requested, and there were no vendors, inflatables, or entertainment acts this year.

Shelby Simpson from Storyteller Images captured some of the colorful and dazzling explosions in the sky above the river.
