UPDATE: Louisville Bats officials confirm cancellation of Louisville Waterfront fireworks.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials with the Louisville bats announced at 9 p.m. that the fireworks show has been cancelled due to severe weather.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced that the Louisville Waterfront 3rd Celebration would end at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Louisville Orchestra announced on their Twitter page earlier in the evening that they would be unable to perform due to incoming weather.

A spokesperson for the Louisville Orchestra said Executive Director Andrew Kipe and other event coordinators made the decision to end the events early.

"It was a very difficult decision to make but the safety of our patrons and our musicians is always the main priority, and we could not in good conscious ask the public to come out or our musicians to perform in such conditions," Kipe said. 

Officials say a rain date will not be scheduled. 

"We still want to highlight the incredible talent of the #SingForTheCity contest winners, and we hope to have an opportunity to include them in a public concert at some point in the future," said Music Director Teddy Abrams.
