Firecracker 6: Start the Tradition

Firecracker 6 takes place annually on July 4th at 8AM in beautiful White River State Park running on surrounding streets, & paved trails. This area is a favorite for local runners/walkers, and showcases beautiful views along the river including some breathtaking views of our city skyline.
