Fireworks Cancelled

Apparently three-is-not-a-charm, at least when it comes to Hillsborough's Independence Day Fireworks. They were re-scheduled for Labor Day after two weather- related cancellations; they have now been cancelled for the third time and are not being rescheduled.

According to the Hillsborough e-news:

The Fireworks Vendor has notified Hillsborough that the fireworks have been cancelled. As a result of Hurricane Irene, the field conditions are not conducive to having the large trucks drive upon it and that concern was raised by the Vendor. There are also concerns about the weekend weather forecast and it is feared that the event will be cancelled again after having multiple rain dates. These issues, coupled with the fact that the Township is concentrating their efforts on the restoration and clean up after the storm, prompted the cancellation.

Bigger and better Fourth of July fireworks will be established for next year by the event sponsors, Assemblyman Peter J. Biondi and TD Bank.
