Here is the statement from the Hopkinsville Fire Department:
WESTERN KY ST. FAIR FIREWORKS SHOW CANCELLED
The Hopkinsville Fire Dept. in conjunction with the City of Hopkinsville and Christian County at this time must inform you that as of this morning the fireworks show at the Fair tonight has been cancelled. This decision was made this morning by City and County officials due to the extreme nature of the weather we have been experiencing over the past few weeks. The lack of rain and high temperatures has made the use of fireworks to any degree an extreme danger. This decision was not made easily but in hopes to protect life and property in our community.
