KIRKWOOD, Mo. – The City of Kirkwood has cancelled its upcoming Winter Fireworks Festival due to the frigid forecast.

The festival was scheduled for Saturday, December 30 but will has been postponed to next February.

“Fireworks require a guarding of the perimeter,” said Donna Poe, Executive Director of the Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District. “Once they are delivered at 10 a.m. in the morning, that means someone has to guard this perimeter from several points all day long and we’re just not comfortable asking people to be outside in this weather.”

The festival has now been scheduled for February 10 at 6:30 p.m. The fireworks will be launched from the parking lot at Kirkwood City Hall.
