You have to wonder. Will people In Fort Madison, Iowa be yelling “Happy September 2nd” during this year’s fireworks show? They might. This year’s Independence Day fireworks show has been moved due to flooding.
The September 2nd date will coincide with the city’s celebration of Labor Day.
The fireworks launching pad at Riverview Park in Fort Madison has been underwater for a while. Organizers say it’s hard to tell how long the river will remain high. Once the river recedes, it will take about a week for the water to leave the park.
