Town NewsOrganizers of Brattleboro’s Fourth of July parade, Living Memorial Park festivities and fireworks will use several local media sources to announce any last-minute cancellations Wednesday due to severe weather.

The “By the People: Brattleboro Goes Fourth” citizens committee and town Recreation & Parks Department will cancel rather than postpone some or all scheduled Independence Day activities in the event of thundershowers that could endanger participants and the public.

Organizers hope to decide whether to hold the parade by Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. They will cancel the morning march if they wake to thunderstorms and/or a forecast of imminent severe weather.

Parade participants and spectators are encouraged to check the websites www.brattleborogoesfourth.com, www.reformer.com and www.ibrattleboro.com or listen to WTSA Radio 96.7 FM before leaving for the 9 a.m. lineup and 10 a.m. start.

(The parade cannot be delayed to a later date because of local permitting, police and liability insurance issues.)

The town Recreation & Parks Department also will decide Wednesday whether to cancel any afternoon or evening activities at Living Memorial Park. Any and all of those cancellations will be reported on the websites www.brattleborogoesfourth.com, www.reformer.com and www.ibrattleboro.com and on WTSA Radio 96.7 FM.

Organizers ask the public to share this precautionary statement via email and social media with everyone planning to attend Brattleboro’s July 4 parade, Living Memorial Park festivities or fireworks.

    You can keep an eye on f orecasts on our weather page. The forecast discussion gives good details, like this from Tuesday at 1 pm:

    SYNOPSIS... DRY AND VERY WARM WEATHER IS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY TONIGHT. A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND ASSOCIATED FRONTAL BOUNDARIES WILL BEGIN TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION LATER TONIGHT AND ON WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATER TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. IT WILL ALSO BE VERY WARM AND HUMID ON WEDNESDAY. THE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE SCATTERED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING...THEN COMPLETELY END BY LATER WEDNESDAY NIGHT. MORE DRY BUT VERY WARM WEATHER IS EXPECTED THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

    Later in the day is looking better than previously forecast. Fingers crossed!
