UPDATE: Menasha fireworks rescheduled for Saturday now canceled


MENASHA - The Menasha fireworks at Jefferson Park have been canceled for Saturday night.

The fireworks display was rescheduled due to strong winds coming off of Lake Winnebago on Friday- and now it has been canceled for the same reason.

Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue officials say if the probability exists that burning embers or debris fallout will land on or near spectators or homes, the show must be canceled.

"The decision to cancel the fireworks was not an easy one," Assistant Chief and Fire Marshall Vernon Green said. "But it is truly done in the best interest of everyone involved."

Officials say the city staff of Menasha will discuss the possibility of a future fireworks show.
