As Saturday afternoon led into evening, there were some nervous glances exchanged among Trumbull Day officials. Rain clouds were building, and the decision had been made hours earlier that the fireworks would go on — rain or no rain.
“You have to make a decision early in the day whether to postpone the fireworks or not,” said Kathy McGannon, clerk of the Trumbull Day Commission. “It takes time to load the fireworks. Once they’re loaded, they can’t be unloaded, so they were going to get shot off Saturday night no matter what.”
