Florissant Fireworks Planned to Continue as Scheduled
Florissant Parks and Recreation assistant director confirms that the show will go on, for now.
With blazing temperatures cancelling and postponing fireworks shows around the St. Louis area, Florissant has confirmed that the city plans to push forward with their show.
Todd Schmidt, assistant director of Florissant Parks and Recreation, said Friday that officials feel confident keeping the show as planned.
Schmidt said that there have been discussions of cancelling or postponing between him, the fireworks company and the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District, but all feel comfortable keeping things as scheduled.
He did indicate that it doesn’t mean things can’t change.
The Florissant Fourth of July Celebration is scheduled to take place at the James J. Eagan Center at 7:30 p.m. with a concert by Northwinds Concert Band.
