The flooded-out Grafton fireworks will go on after all this Friday July 24.  The Grafton City Council confirmed in special meeting last night that the fireworks display will take place Friday at dusk, rather than Labor Day weekend.  The Loading Dock will host the event that will begin around 9pm.

The original thought was to reschedule the display for a holiday weekend, but local businesses that have been hurt by flooding this summer wanted to bring visitors to town sooner rather than later.  Also rescheduled, is the Grafton Towboat Festival, which will take place August 1 and 2 at the riverfront.
