MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Stormy weather ended the party early in Montpelier.

Officials in the Capital City were forced to cancel the parade scheduled for Thursday evening due to expected storms.

The fireworks show still went off, but it was deployed early, right after the 6 p.m. Montpelier Mile Race finished. Montpelier officials urged people to watch the fireworks display from the safety of their homes instead of coming out.

Activities earlier in the day on the Vermont Statehouse lawn were not affected by the weather.
