About two hours before the fireworks display was scheduled to begin Thursday night at Riverside Park as part of Pittsville’s annual Independence Day celebration, organizers announced on Facebook that the display would be postponed “due to weather changes faster than expected.”

The date has been rescheduled for Friday at 10 p.m. Organizers said food stalls will be open starting at 7 p.m., but due to permit restrictions, only lemonade and water will be available as beverages.
