Most people unphased by changes to firework shows

Posted: Updated:
LYNN, Mass. (WHDH) - With the threat of Tropical Storm Arthur becoming a hurricane and hitting Massachusetts on the Fourth of July communities across the state are changing their plans for firework shows.

One of the first towns to change their performance was Lynn where residents are mostly taking it in stride.

"I'd rather have it July 4th but I think July 6th will work because it won't be raining,” Emily Wooten said.

Business owners don’t seem to mind the change either.

"All upset about the weather and what was going to happen with them so I think they're happy with moving to Sunday with the good weather and people coming out enjoy the festivities,” Donnell Murphy said.

Down the Cape many people planned their vacations months ahead of time for this week, but they are just relaxing and most said they can wait an extra day for the celebration.

“I think we'll go regardless, and it'll be a fun weekend. I think Sunday it'll be tougher for people going back to work,” one woman said in Falmouth.

Along the water in Lynn and Swampscott is always a favorite spot to celebrate and watch the fireworks.

"It's all good. If they're going to move it to the next day and the weather is great then I think it's the right thing to do,” one woman said.
