Road Closures announced for Rich Hill 4th of July Celebration

Wow, it’s that time of the year already….. Rich Hill 4th of July week 

We are not sure where this year has gone, but the carnival rolls into town soon for the big 4th of July festivities.  So that means there will be some road closures in the upcoming days.  

The first closures will be Park Ave from 5th to 7th. 6th Street will be blocked a half block north and south of Park Ave as well.  We will start blocking this section off today 6/27 since the carnival moves in tomorrow night.  7th street will remain open until July 4th.  This closure will remain throughout the entirety of the festival.  

The next road closures will take place Wednesday June 30th for the Color Run.  This will close all cross streets along Park Ave from the tracks all the way to 14th Street.  This closure will open back up after the color run.  

Saturday July 3rd there will be some road closures on the West side of the circle park for Easton Corbin concert. 

Finally the big day July 4th we will block all cross roads along Park Ave from 1st Street to 5th Street including around the Circle park.  These ropes will be removed after the parade.  

We will also be blocking off a block away  in every direction from the fireworks shoot sight the morning of the 4th.  These closures will remain until after the fireworks have completed. 

We all know that the road closures are not fun to deal but we ask you be patient and detour around these closures.  These closures help keep those partaking in the festival safe. Have a happy and safe 4th of July! - Courtesy of the Rich Hill Fire Department
