Snapshot: CarmelFest returns with fireworks, concerts, more


CarmelFest returned July 4 and 5 with concerts, vendors, kids’ activities, a parade, fireworks and more after being canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, traditionally held at Civic Square, expanded its footprint to include Carter Green to help reduce crowding. CarmelFest is presented through a partnership between the Rotary Club of Carmel and the City of Carmel. (Photos by Ann Marie Shambaugh)
