SHELTON — The Derby-Shelton fireworks, which had already been postponed to Thursday, have been put on hold again.

In a joint decision by both cities, the fireworks were again postponed because of weather concerns on both Thursday and Friday, which was the rain date.

On the city of Shelton website, city officials stated that “a new date that doesn’t conflict with other previously scheduled events will be announced soon.”

The fireworks had originally been set for July 2, but weather concerns forced the delay to Thursday.
