The JB Blast Fourth of July celebration has been postponed, possibly until October.
Like cities around the St. Louis region, the Lemay Fire Protection District will not issue a permit for fireworks due to the hot, dry weather conditions. That means the JB Blast won't be able to have fireworks.
Extremely dry ground cover, lack of rain, low humidty and high temperatures all contributed to Lemay Fire Protection District's decision, said acting duty officer Norm Glover.
St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger said the event might be postponed until as late as October when "weather will be better."
The fire district's decision came in after Patch ran a story saying the fireworks were still on.
