Why Has Vernon Postponed Their Fireworks Show?

In a statement the city released, you can see the main concern is dry conditions in the area currently. If a fire were to breakout due to the fireworks, it would quickly spread due to the dry conditions. In agreement with local fire officials, the city thought it would be smart to not to do the fireworks show at this time. The pool will still be open for extended hours so folks can still enjoy that to cool off.
