The Noblesville Fourth of July Fireworks Festival is excited to announce a partnership with Nickel Plate Express to offer train rides during the holiday event at Forest Park. Nickel Plate Express will offer 30-minute rides on the hour during the festival from 5 to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 (no charge for children ages 4 and younger) and may be purchased in advance by clicking here or onsite at the Nickel Plate Express ticket booth. The Noblesville Fourth of July festival marks the return of a train to Forest Park and the beginning of a continued presence by Nickel Plate Express in Noblesville.

“The Nickel Plate Express team is looking forward to rolling into Forest Park for Fourth of July festivities,” said Dagny Zupin, Nickel Plate Express communication and program director. “The City of Noblesville has planned an exciting day for families and we’re happy to be a part of that celebration.”

The free Fireworks Festival, presented by IDI Composites International, will take place at Forest Park from 4 to 10 p.m. The location move has allowed the festival planning committee to combine park amenities with annual festival traditions and new experiences.

“We have many new opportunities for the public at this year’s festival and activities for all age groups. It will be great having the train return to the park with Nickel Plate Express offering low-cost excursion rides throughout the event,” said Mike Hoffmeister, festival co-chairman.

This year’s festival includes a 300-foot zipline, beer garden, ninja warrior course, cornhole, Indy Eleven activity, trackless train and 11 inflatables in the Kids Zone. The event also includes two stages – one in the Kids Zone with specialized shows and music for children, and a main stage with headliner Road Trip, a cover band from Milwaukee, and School of Rock as the opener.

More announcements about the upcoming Fourth of July festivities will be released soon. For more information about sponsoring or donating to the holiday activities, contact festival co-chairman Robert Herrington at 317-776-6324.
