Claremont Fourth of July fireworks show canceled due to California drought

CLAREMONT, Calif. (KABC) -- California's historic drought has led to the cancellation of the annual Fourth of July fireworks show in the city of Claremont.

With new outdoor water restrictions going into effect on June 1st, the extensive watering needed to prepare the field at Pomona College for the show is not possible.

Instead, the city plans on hosting a free concert in Memorial Park with food and drinks.

Starting Monday, residents can only water their lawns once a week or they are subject to a hefty fine.
