Zilker Park fire­works will go on, rain or shine

Austin American-Statesman - - METRO & STATE - By Lind­sey Bomnin

The Fourth of July fire­works dis­play at Zilker Park will go on even if it’s rain­ing, Don Hill, pub­lic re­la­tions di­rec­tor for the Austin Sym­phony, said.

But the sym­phony can­not play as planned in stormy con­di­tions be­cause of the po­ten­tial dam­age to their ex­pen­sive in­stru­ments, Hill said.

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice is pre­dict­ing a 40 per­cent chance of thun­der­storms on In­de­pen­dence Day.

“Were go­ing to wait to make a de­ci­sion right un­til show time,” Hill said.

The show is sched­uled to be­gin at 8:30 p.m.

If there is rain, Hill said, the sym­phony will sub­sti­tute live mu­sic with a CD of pa­tri­otic mu­sic.
