Waveny concert canceled, fireworks still on

Tonight’s Cool Shoes concert at Waveny Park has been canceled due to the upcoming storms, Recreation Director Stephen Benko just announced.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for Fairfield County until 9 p.m. There is a 60 percent chance of rain in New Canaan and rainfall could total 0.5 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

Some towns could see severe storms, with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain.

As for Family Fourth fireworks at the park, Benko said he’s expected to make a decision by 3 p.m. Thursday, as more storms are expected on Friday. The event is scheduled for the evening of July 4.

The Waveny Summer Concerts are taking place every Wednesday from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tonight’s performance was the only one without a scheduled rain date, but Benko said the department would try to arrange a new date for the band to come back later this month.
