ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Flooding has changed some plans for Fourth of July celebrations throughout the state, but many shows will go on.

St. Paul’s annual fireworks display will continue, despite Harriet Island flooding, and A Taste of Minnesota moving to the Carver County Fairgrounds in Waconia. The St. Paul fireworks show has been moved to the grounds of the State Capitol Mall on Friday at 10 p.m.

Flooding has forced other cities to move or alter their Fourth of July plans. The city of Delano, which has had a lot of flooding the past few weeks, noted on its July Fourth website, “contrary to popular rumor, Delano has not floated away” and the show will happen with just slight changes in location.

St. Cloud's 67th annual fireworks show begins at 10:00 pm, with the pyrotechnics shot off from a barge on the Mississippi River between Wilson and Hester parks.
