With significant water already on the field and more rain expected as we head into the weekend, Saturday evening’s free Independence Day concert and fireworks show at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park has been canceled.
Ticketholders who reserved paid parking while claiming their free tickets online will receive automatic refunds from the Charleston RiverDogs’ ticketing office.
“Obviously, we’re disappointed,” said city Director of Cultural Affairs Scott Watson. “This promised to be a great family event, and we hate to have to cancel. That said, we want to thank the Charleston Symphony for all the hard work they put into planning an outstanding show, and for immediately volunteering to perform at another special free end of summer celebration, which we’ll announce as soon as the details have been finalized.”
