Entry Description

The annual air show and fireworks show, “Thunder Over Louisville” will take place at the riverfront on Saturday April 21st. With good weather crowds are expected to draw at least 500,000 people. The Indiana State Police and other local agencies will be working to make sure it stays safe on the Indiana side of the river.

Approximately one hundred and twenty-one, (121), state troopers along with approximately one hundred and twenty-five, (125), other officers from local city, county, and state law enforcement agencies will combine to provide traffic direction, interstate patrols, and foot patrols. The Indiana State Police will also have an emergency response team, a bomb squad, and aircraft available if the need arises.

If anyone has an emergency while attending the festivities they should dial 911. If they have a general complaint or need a police report they should dial 812-283-6633 or 812-246-5424.

The Indiana State Police wants everyone who attends the event to have a good time. However, troopers and other officers will be patrolling looking for violations of the law. If anyone sees a suspicious package, car, or any other suspicious activity they should contact the first officer they see or dial the numbers provided above.

Following are a few rules that will be enforced on the riverfront. No alcohol, no open fires, no tents, no pets, and no skateboards will be allowed.

Traffic on Interstate 65 South will be rerouted from 8:00 PM until 11:00 PM on the night of “Thunder”. Traffic will be rerouted at Interstate 265 to Interstate 64. There will be numerous other road closures and reroutes in the local cities and towns. There will be traffic delays. Indiana State Police is asking that everyone be patient and drive defensively.
