Fireworks are still scheduled for downtown Springfield this evening, despite the snowy weather.
A fireworks display is planned for six-15 p.m. as part of First Night Springfield, and organizers say the snow won’t be a problem. But if the winds pick up, that could affect the fireworks. Winds of more than 18 miles per hour could force cancellation of the display, but organizers say the forecast looks favorable for the fireworks to go on as planned tonight.
All other First Night events, including entertainment at six downtown venues tonight, will go on as scheduled, regardless of the weather. Stay with 970 WMAY for updates.
