The dry weather had placed Wednesday night’s fireworks display at the Hardin County Fairgrounds in question.
But Kenton Fire Chief Russ Blue said today, barring a statewide ban, the show should go on as planned.
Since issuing the no-burning advisory Friday, Blue said, there has been rain in the county. Even though the amount which fell was less than a half-inch in Kenton, the fireworks shouldn’t be interrupted. He planned to go to the fairgrounds today with firefighters to assess the risk.
“If the fire marshal’s office cancels fireworks statewide, though, we are done,” said Blue.
The annual Fourth of July parade is set to line up at the fairgrounds at 3 p.m. Wednesday and begin at 4 p.m. The activities at the fairgrounds are expected to continue even in the unlikely event the fireworks are canceled, said a spokesperson for the fair board.
The fireworks show is set for 10 p.m.
