STILL ON...FOR NOW: Mayor says Col. City fireworks not canceled, yet

June 23, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — As of now, Columbia City’s fireworks are still planned to take place on July 3 at Morsches Park.
“With the lack of rain and hot conditions and dried grass, it’s a pretty good issue,” said Mayor Ryan Daniel.
Although the city is still under a burn ban, Daniel said it usually rains once during the upcoming Old Settlers Days, and he is hoping that pattern will continue, or that Columbia City will see rain over that weekend.
“If for some reason we choose to cancel for safety reasons, I could imagine a decision will be made by the Monday before the fireworks,” said Daniel.
