However, the powers that be with the Canyon Independence Celebration have decided to cancel the fireworks show.

According to their social media post:

Due to the current drought conditions as well as future forecast the 2022 4th of July Fireworks Show is postponed until a date later this year.

Some may be thinking, they lifted the fireworks ban why can't they do fireworks.  Even though the fireworks ban was lifted, the Canyon Chamber of Commerce decided they didn't want to risk a fire.

If you look at the extended forecast it's hot and windy without rain.

Speaking with Roger with the Canyon Chamber of Commerce, he said don't worry, we'll have the fireworks later in the year, it could be Labor Day, it could be during the Canyon Chamber Chow Down, or it could be after our Christmas parade.  We are going to have them, and we'll let everyone know.

Even though the fireworks are canceled don't worry, the 4th of July festivities are still going on.
