Hairspray the Musical at the Riverfront Amphitheater

New Albany Riverstage Productions are back this weekend with their latest show, Hairspray!

Hairspray tells the story of teenager Tracy Turnblad and her quest to be on the Corny Collins show. When Tracy gets the opportunity to audition to dance on the show, she quickly jumps on it - but this doesn't sit well with scheming dance queen Amber von Tussle, who plots with her mother Velma to remove Tracy from the show at all costs.

This is the third year at the Riverfront Amphitheater for New Albany Riverstage Productions, having shown Grease in 2015 and Seussical the Musical in 2014. This production is proudly presented by the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County and the City of New Albany.

"Each year, I'm amazed by the level of skill and professionalism that the young actors in our community possess, and we are very pleased with how the show has come together."

Riverfront Independence Day Celebration

The Riverfront Independence Day Celebration will be on Sunday, July 3 at the scenic Riverfront Amphitheater. The event begins at 6pm.  This year's lineup includes the local favorite country music act Wildwood and the always entertaining Louisville Crashers. So grab a lawn chair or a blanket and come join us for a wonderful night of family-fun along the Ohio River.

In addition to the live music, the event will host tons of children's inflatables to bounce around on, the famous Bubble Machine, local food vendors, a beer garden area, an Independence Day Recognition Ceremony, and to top it all off - a beautiful fireworks display at dark.  The event is proudly presented by the City of New Albany and the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County, and the fireworks display is sponsored by the Horseshoe Foundation and McBrides Fleet.

Trunk or Treat returns this Saturday night!

TRUNK OR TREAT RAIN LOCATION: If it is raining during the Trunk or Treat time, the event will move to the first floor of the downtown Parking Garage on State Street to provide cover from the rain.  If it is deemed that the event needs to be moved due to rain, we will post on social media and we will have staff at the riverfront directing people to the new location. However, we are hopeful that the event will be able to continue as planned at the New Albany Riverfront.


Trunk or Treat returns this Saturday night!  Come join us for a night of games, inflatables, rock climbing, lazer tag, and CANDY!  The event is free and runs from 5 pm - 7 pm.
