In a press release, the Brazos Valley Bombers have stated that they are cancelling their fireworks show this evening.
"As we're all aware, the Brazos Valley and the state of Texas have been hit with another tough drought this summer. The dangers caused by such a drought have forced officials to institute a burn ban for the area, and rightfully so. After long deliberations all the way till this morning, the Brazos Valley Bombers concur with this policy, and so it’s with a heavy heart that the Bombers organization announces that we are cancelling the 3D fireworks show for tonight.
"The popularity of our fireworks this summer has been incredible. We've enjoyed seeing the smiles on the faces of our fans, beaming as bright as the fireworks that light up the sky. As much as we will miss those moments tonight, we would never do anything to jeopardize the safety of our fans.
"Take heart, though, that the excitement will continue at American Momentum Bank Ballpark tonight and tomorrow for the first playoff game. The Bombers remain the top destination in the Brazos Valley for affordable family fun.
"Like all of you, we can’t wait a break in this oppressive drought and a chance to finally light up the night sky with a fireworks show at the ballpark. In the meantime, we look forward to enjoying a Bombers game with you and your family sometime soon."
