Original Story:

There are some changes to this weekend’s Cochrane Summerfest celebrations.

The organizing committee posted on social media that the annual firework celebration normally held on Saturday night will be cancelled this year. The committee says because of how dry it is and the ongoing fire ban in the region, it’s safer to not set off the fireworks this year.

The rest of the weekend’s family activities are set to run like normal. Click here for a full schedule.

The Summerfest committee says it will hold a community fireworks night in the near future.
