Springfield fireworks to be held July 5

SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Officials from the Spirit of Springfield told CBS 3, said the city's fireworks display will be held on Saturday, July 5.

The event was originally supposed to be held on July 4, however with inclement weather expected for Friday, officials said they don't want to risk holding Fourth of July celebration in bad weather.

The change in date also means the Memorial Bridge in Springfield will remain open Thursday night. It was expected to close for fireworks set up, but will now close Friday at 11 p.m.
