Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, Cancels New Year’s Eve Fireworks
Hampton Beach has canceled its New Year's Eve fireworks show because of fog, but the display for Pro Portsmouth's First Night celebration is still a go.
The year will end with rain developing Saturday afternoon with temperatures in the 50s. Heavy fog is expected to develop, making it difficult to see the fireworks over the beach at B & C Streets, according to the Hampton Beach Village District, which was putting on the display.
The refreshments, snacks, and open house at the Blue Ocean Discovery Center is also canceled.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your understanding. We wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy 2023," the Hampton Beach Village District wrote on its Facebook page.
Pro Portsmouth is moving forward with its First Night celebration that gets underway at 2 p.m. with ice sculpture carving. The fireworks display is scheduled to go off at South Mill Pond at 7:30 p.m.
