The city of Peru rescheduled its Independence Day celebration when high waters created dangerous conditions on the riverfront, where the festivities take place each year.

This year's show was postponed more than a month and set for Saturday of Labor Day weekend, with Sunday as a rain date. The show did not need to be delayed any longer, however, and went on as planned.

Festivities began at 5 p.m. and were scheduled to shut down at 11 p.m.
