How Will Inclement Weather Affect Your Local Fireworks Show?


Fourth of July celebrations are taking place across Middle Tennessee all weekend long, with many ending their events with a spectacular fireworks displays.

And while you can always count on amazing fireworks displays, you can’t always count on the weather holding out. With a probable chance of rain on Monday which could change, we reached out to area cities asking what would happen if the weather became too inclement for fireworks. We heard back from many event organizers, which we’ve published below.

If local fireworks shows get postponed or canceled due to weather, we will publish a list of affected events, so keep checking our site for new information.
