Greenville Eagles Independence Day Celebration - July 3rd

Classified is once again the headline entertainment for the Greenville Eagles annual Independence Day Celebration at Shade Road July 3. Also featured will be Darke County’s Got Talent, Cotton and Darke County’s largest fireworks display.

The Eagles Shade Road Independence Day Celebration will be bigger than ever this year thanks to the return of Darke County’s largest fireworks display. Sponsored by Greenville Eagles, the event starts at noon on July 3 and culminates “whenever!”

Music will be provided throughout the day and evening, headlined once again by “Classified.” Also featured are “Cotton” and the first of three “Darke County’s Got Talent” karaoke semi-finals.

“The reputations of Classified and Cotton are established,” said Greenville Trustee Ron Kreitzer, “but the local talent that has surfaced in our karaoke contest is also fantastic.

“We have some really great singers competing for the $1,000 grand prize to be awarded this fall.”

The talent contest will begin about noon, followed by Cotton and then Classified. The fireworks will start about 10 p.m.

“The unfortunate situation with our fireworks provider last year made it possible to build an even better show this year,” said Past Worthy President Kerry Young. “There will be a strong patriotic soundtrack timed with about 20-25 minutes of non-stop fireworks.”

The Greenville Eagles membership has been funding fireworks displays for the Darke County community for the past four years. The Independence Day Celebration was moved to Eagles Shade Road last year.

There will be beverages, food from multiple vendors, and for the kids, the Moonwalk and playground equipment. Want to throw a few horseshoes? Bring them along and take advantage of the Shade Road horseshoe area.

As always, admission to the Independence Day Celebration is free.

For a different taste of entertainment, plan to pick up your tickets for an evening of “Ribs ‘n Blues,” sponsored jointly by the Darke County Center for the Arts and the Greenville Eagles. It starts at 6 p.m. on July 16 at Shade Road, and features “Ray Fuller & The Blues Rockers.” A $12 ticket gets your choice ribs or chicken, a side and a beverage and a great evening of entertainment. Tickets will be available on July 3, as well as from any Eagles officer or DCCA board member.


  1. The largest fire works display in Darke County? I take it you have never seen the ones in New Madison that is shot by the Fire Dept and all donations. There are no other fireworks around that compare to these. People come from all over even out of state to see these. so you might want to re think what you are saying.

  2. o get over yourself dude ITS CALLED MARKETING EVERY HEARD OF IT GEEZ..........

  3. I didn't get to see Greenville's fire works last year.......oh thats right nobody else did either.

  4. Mr Keaser,
    In marketing, if something is advertised as "the largest," it better be the largest. Otherwise, it's called false advertising? Ever hear of it?

    Now, if an advertiser advertises as "the best" then one can't argue about that. It's subjective. There's a difference.

    So, don't be so hard on someone for stating a fact.

  5. I heard the band classified playing at poultry days...let me tell you they were awsome. Does anyone know where I could find a schedule of when these guys play cause they were good I would like to go again.

  6. The have a Facebook page...Classified Band of Greenville Ohio and also a MySpace page..that has their schedule thru the rest of the

  7. oh thank you very much...appreciate the information I will check it out

  8. Yes, Classified definitely rocks that's for sure!! Love em~

  9. I think thats all New Madison is noted for, other than that i see nothing great about that podunk town

  10. i am new to the area, where does this even take place?

  11. Want a really good show? Try City Folk Festival in Dayton, 45mins of solid fireworks, super duper show on the 4th at Kings Island

  12. the fireworks display at the eagles fireworks put up 900 shells in multiple bursts in it's display. i watched new madisons and it was single shells fired . not as good in my book. the ending was good in both shows.
    by the way, don't pan a show that you haven't even seen!
