Kingston fireworks have been postponed until Saturday, July 13.

Though attempts were made to have other events, such as the raft race and watermelon-eating contest, torrential Fourth of July rains forced those to also be postponed until July 13.

Boat races have to finish today, said Joyce Lewis, executive assistant with the Kingston City Manage's Office.

"Will try to happen on schedule, but may happen when any breaks in rain occur," she said. "Water needs to be as calm as possible for them to race."
