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.

KMTV Action 3 News reporter Nick Starling posted this video of people in the audience getting ready for the concert around 7:45 p.m. tonight. 

Shortly after though, he said it started pouring and people began running to stay dry. The Omaha Symphony then tweeted this:

Earlier today, the City of Council Bluffs said they had already hit record attendance. 

Activities for Loessfest continue through Sunday, June 5th
