Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Decatur Park District’s 4th of July firework display, typically held in Nelson Park over Lake Decatur will be canceled for 2021. We are looking forward to returning 4th of July fireworks over Lake Decatur in 2022!

Citing a “loss of crew members and a personnel shortage” long-term fireworks production provider, Mad Bomber, has withdrawn their proposal for the Decatur fireworks display and will be unable to have a trained certified crew available on Independence Day 2021.

The District’s Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater will still host its 4th of July Celebration with River Bottom Nightmare Band. All tickets are just $4 for this night of awesome music from one of the most popular bands in Macon County. Dance the night away with hit songs from several decades! Get your tickets in advance at

Questions can be directed to the staff at the Decatur Park District and reached at 217-422-5911.
