“We’re very disappointed,” said Susan Christian with the mayor’s office of special events. “While we can plan great events, we can’t plan the weather.”
Eleanor Tinsley Park will be closed tonight, along with Allen Parkway and Sabine Street.
Christian asks everyone who planned to attend the event to stay home and watch the fireworks show on TV.
