CITY FIREWORKS WILL GO TONIGHT
A last-minute decision to cancel the fireworks display in Charlottetown left spectators confused and upset. The city said it had to postpone its Canada Day fireworks display due to an increase in wind speed less than an hour before the 10 p.m. fireworks display. The city said if weather cooperates, the fireworks display will take place today, July 2, at Victoria Park at 10 p.m. As a result, road and boardwalk closures in place July 1 will remain in place today.
