The holiday weekend events for Loessfest were supposed to cap off with a fireworks show and performance by the Omaha Symphony. The symphony's performance has been canceled after strong rains hit earlier tonight and then again just after 8 p.m. tonight.
But Loessfest wants everyone to know the fireworks are still on.
