Threat of Rain Postpones Riverfest Fireworks


Though we haven't seen any rain in the last two weeks, the threat of it is forcing big changes to this weekend's Riverfest in Hartford.

Riverfront Recapture, which sponsors the event, says it is moving all Riverfest activities, including the fireworks, which were planned for Saturday, July 10, to Sunday, July 11.

Entertainment will now begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday at Mortenson Riverfront Plaza in Hartford, and across the river in Great River Park and Founders Plaza in East Hartford. The fireworks will now go off Sunday at 9 p.m.

The threat of rain and thunderstorms on Saturday is the reason behind the change.
