RAIN AND UMBRELLA

A fireworks display originally scheduled for tonight in Victoria Park has been cancelled due to expected bad weather.

The display, which is part of Charlottetown’s 1864 Anniversary Celebrations, has been tentatively rescheduled to 10 p.m. Sunday.

Organizers said a further announcement regarding the fireworks will be made around noon on Sunday.

The loud and colourful display wasn’t the only 1864 anniversary event that ran into problems with Saturday’s rain.

Because of the steady rain, events have been cancelled, postponed or moved indoors as the organizers’ “rain plan” goes into high gear.
