The Cary Park District on Monday announced its decision to cancel the fireworks portion of the summer celebration scheduled for Tuesday, July 3.
Summer Celebration will be held at Lions Park, 1170 Silver Lake Rd, Cary.
The fireworks scheduled for the conclusion of the Summer Celebration were cancelled due to the extreme dry conditions, according to a press release issued Monday by Katie Hughes, director of communications for the park district.
"Safety is the number one priority," said Cary Park District Executive Director Dan Jones in the press release.
"The decision to cancel the fireworks was a joint decision between the Cary Fire Protection District, Cary Police Department, McHenry County Conservation District and park district."
The fireworks may be rescheduled later this summer, Hughes said.
The park will open at 6:30 p.m., and the concert featuring the band "28 Days" will still be held. The band will play from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Rotary Band Shell at Lions Park.
Summertime food and beverages will be available for purchase at the park. Admission and parking is free.
The community-oriented celebration is hosted by the Cary Park District with assistance from the village of Cary and the Cary Area Fire Protection District.
