ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayor Guardian announced today that the free 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular show scheduled for this Friday in Atlantic City will be moved to Sunday, July 6th at 9:30pm.
Mayor Guardian said, "While Hurricane Arthur is predicted to be far off shore Friday night, the effects on the ocean waves and the accompanying wind would hinder our fireworks show from reaching its full potential that night, and possibly create a safety hazard. So we decided to move our fireworks show back to Sunday, July 6th at 9:30pm.
In addition, we wanted to give residents and tourists an opportunity to end their 4th of July holiday weekend with a 'bang'. We figured having the biggest fireworks show on the Jersey Shore on a Sunday night would be a perfect way to end the weekend.
So for those who are coming to Atlantic City this weekend, you won't be disappointed. The weather for both Saturday and Sunday looks terrific. According to the Weather Channel, both Saturday and Sunday are forecasted to be completely sunny, with temperatures in the low 80s, and having a zero percent chance of rain. It doesn't get any better than that. I will see you out on Atlantic City's beaches, boardwalk, and Marina District!"
*The "Sky Concerttm" was created by Pyro Spectaculars by Souza, and is presented by the Atlantic City Alliance. Song selections were chosen "by the people" from a contest that was held by the Atlantic City Alliance. Viewing locations will be near the Steel Pier, the Pier Shops at Caesars, and in the Marina District. The program will begin at 9:30pm, and will include 10,000 fireworks shells and effects. In the final 30 seconds alone, more than 1,000 shells will be fired."
