NEWBERRY, SC (WIS) -

Residents in Newberry hoping to see fireworks Tuesday night to celebrate the Fourth of July will have to wait just a little longer.

Officials postponed the Law Enforcement Officers’ Fireworks Spectacular until Saturday, July 8, due to weather and safety concerns.

"The pyro-technician has called it due to lightning in the area," the statement said. "Static electricity is dangerous for the firing mechanism."

The event is still slated to take place at Mike Ware Field at Newberry High School around 9 p.m.
