JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The activities the city of Jacksonville planned at the Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration at Riverfront Plaza were started late due to afternoon downpours, the fun eventually started.
The party -- including a family fun zone, food trucks, bars and a concert -- started two hours late, but those attending gave it good reviews. People said they’ve brought umbrellas and are ready to see a good show.

Those who attended were just glad the rain stopped and skies cleared so they could enjoy the fireworks show.
“We decided to come out because we’re tired of sitting at home and we thought, you know, the rain is probably going to stop. Checked radar and said, ‘yeah, let’s take a chance’ and brought an umbrella just in case,” said Ellen Jones.
