The fireworks display slated for tonight has been canceled.
Mayor Sam Teresi said due to heavy rain and thunderstorms that swept over the region earlier this evening, the decision was made to clear the park. After a brief delay, the fireworks display was scrapped.
Teresi said Bergman Park "took in a lot of water" in a short amount of time. He added that public safety weighed heavily in canceling the remainder of the 34th Annual Labor Day Festival.
