SUPERIOR — People that missed out on the Superior fireworks on the Fourth of July had to wait until Labor Day to see them explode in the sky: kind of. After bad weather forced the postponement of the show on July 4th, the city moved the show to Monday, Sept. 5.

The weather was much more cooperative on Labor Day, except for a low-lying cloud right over Barker’s Island. However the low cloud did give off a neat effect to some of the fireworks that stayed mid-to-lower height.

Judging by the oohs and ahhs of the crowd, they didn’t mind missing seeing slightly different light show on Labor Day evening.
