Boerne cancels July 4 fireworks

The city of Boerne announced Wednesday it has canceled its Monday Independence Day fireworks show because of public safety concerns related to ongoing dry weather conditions and the increased potential for fires.

“We do not make this decision lightly,” Communications Director Chris Shadrock said. “We know many people in our community look forward to this event each year, but we must continue to prioritize public safety, and reducing the risk of fire is paramount.”

While the Boerne area did receive a fair amount of rain this week, it has not been enough to reduce the fire danger down to a safe level, the city stated.
