July 4th celebrations in danger

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) July 4th marks America's birthday and the height of summer, but this year celebrations will be muted.

The city of Montpelier announced Wednesday that it is canceling its annual July 3rd celebration and fireworks. The town of Warren already called off its iconic Independence Day parade.

The biggest of all is Burlington's waterfront fireworks show, which draws tens of thousands of people. The city on Tuesday said it was still deciding.
