Were fireworks already purchased for the event? If so, can they be saved and used for next year or is the city out the money, although I know there were some sponsors for the event. I am glad Kirkwood elected to put safety first in this matter.

Why don't they have a display on Labor Day? It would be nice to actually be sitting in tolerable temps during the fireworks.

Why did they have to cancel the concert and program? That has nothing to do with fires!
