With the chance of rain and flash flooding a strong possibility across Metro Atlanta on Thursday, July 4, several cities and towns are considering alternate plans for their festivities and fireworks.
The City of Porterdale in Newton County has already postponed their parade and fireworks to Saturday. Officials in the city of Covington also decided to postpone their events until Saturday.
"Same thing as everyone else, it looks like it's going to rain," said Mayor Ronnie Johnston.
He said they decided Monday night to reschedule for a time when the weather was more likely to cooperate. "We had a couple of vendors who were concerned about ordering their food, if it was going to be put off or rained out."
Organizers at Lenox Square say their fireworks and other activities for kids and families will go on, rain or shine, even though the majority of the events are scheduled to take place outside in the parking lot.
