More firework shows postponed due to weather threat
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The list of firework displays postponed on the Fourth of July continues to grow as the chances of severe weather seems to be more likely.
Grand Island is one of the latest shows to announce it will move its planned show to July 5.
Grand Island Fireworks Celebration organizers said they were talking with J & M Displays to assess the situation, saying “it’s a very involved project to do the set up, they don’t want to tear down and reset unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
They made the decision Tuesday afternoon saying it will be postponed.
The City of Hastings was one of the first locations to announce it would hold off on its Independence Day celebrations. The Fourth of July activities scheduled for Brickyard Park will take place on Wednesday, still beginning at 5:30 p.m., the concert at 7 p.m. and fireworks around 10 p.m.
Superior also announced it plans to push its firework show until Wednesday, citing the weather and safety for everyone.
The City of Superior did share on Facebook that due to the impending weather, the city has decided to extend fireworks discharge for all citizens until end of day on July 5. That includes the sale and discharge of fireworks.
The Central City Volunteer Fire Department confirmed this evening that tonight’s firework show will go on as scheduled.
“We are a go for fireworks!” They wrote in a post on Facebook.
The Kearney Country Club also postponed its fireworks display to Friday, July 7 at 10 p.m. If there is rain on Friday, they said they would schedule the fireworks show for a different date.
