CLIFTON – Clifton’s annual July 24 fireworks celebration, scheduled this year on Saturday, July 21, has been postponed because of extremely dry conditions in the area.
The decision was made recently by city officials after discussing fire danger with the Franklin County Fire District Fire Chief Mike Lower and Fire Marshal Scott Martin.
The city council encourages all residents in Clifton to be responsible and hopefully even refrain in your usage of fireworks this year.
The city council collectively said it appreciates the many donations for fireworks and is excited to hold the event at a later date.
“Thank you so much for your support in this very hard decision. We appreciate all that each of you do to make our community a great place to live,” a release from the Clifton City Council stated.
A 5k run, flag-raising and breakfast will still be held on July 21. Registration for the run begins at 6:30 a.m. The flag-raising ceremony will be held at 7 a.m. and breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m.
