Rain Cancels Fireworks, Forks and Corks Event

The two events, scheduled for Saturday, have been cancelled due to the threat of Hurricane Isaac storms in Chesterfield.

Two events in the city of Chesterfield that were scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1, have been officially cancelled.

The Fourth of July fireworks show, which was originally rescheduled due to dry conditions, was cancelled once again because of threat of heavy rain and storms this Saturday. The city also cancelled Forks and Corks, a food festival to be held at the Chesterfield Amphitheater.

“It is in the best interests of everyone’s health and safety that we take this action,” said Libbey Malberg Tucker, economic development director for Chesterfield, in a release.

Malberg Tucker told Chesterfield Patch vendors that were going to be at Forks and Corks were immediately notified and would be reimbursed for the fees they paid to be at the event. The fireworks were scheduled to happen immediately after Forks and Corks.

Malberg Tucker said there was no way around the decision.

“We can’t reschedule it due to the logistics, but we will plan it again for next year’s Labor Day weekend,” Malberg Tucker said. “You know, you can’t really plan for a hurricane.”
