LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) -
Hurricane Arthur changed many Independence Day plans, so July 5th felt more like the 4th this year in New England.
Lowell rescheduled their fireworks celebration for Saturday, which was the original date the city had in mind if rain ruined the actual holiday.
"I think it's great that its happening tonight instead of yesterday because today we have great weather," said Rose Ormond, who came to the country at a young age. "It's the spirit of the U.S. It doesn't really matter if it's the 4th, the 5th or the 9th."
The free festivities will begin at 7 p.m. at Edward A. LeLacheur Park and there will be plenty of activities for the kids, including a bouncy house, a speed pitch, a game hut and others.
"It's a lot of fun I mean you get to bring the kids out and let them enjoy it as well," said Scott Bingham of Lowell.
The fireworks will start at 9 p.m. Barges on the Merrimack River are setting up on the clear day for the display.
