Independence Day weather reared an ugly head and caused the cancellation of most fireworks displays in the central U.P.
Thunderstorms began hitting the area a couple hours before sunset, and the cancellations began. All except for Marquette, however. Even with lightning in the area and a mass exodus of soaked patrons, the organizers of the fireworks display at Mattson Lower Harbor Park vowed that the show would go on. According to reports however, very few were on hand to see it.
If you were one of the folks who decided to come out of the rain and missed the display. the Ishpeming fireworks will take place tonight at sunset.
See you there!
