The fireworks show at the Rideau Canal Festival on Saturday night has been cancelled due to drought conditions in the region, say organizers. The fireworks will be replaced by alternate, less flammable programming.
Festival organizers have been working with Ottawa Fire Services who were concerned about the tinder-dry conditions in the city in the last month.
