Palo Duro Canyon (KFDA) -

The TEXAS Outdoor Musical fireworks show has been canceled for the time being.

NewsChannel10 was issued the following statement regarding the decision: 

The fireworks are being canceled by Artist Director Dave Yirak. We have staffed fire crew the last several nights as a safety precaution, but for the safety of those crews and our patrons we feel that it’s in the best interest of all to cancel until we have some significant rainfall. We have an impressive light and water show in our finale- so canceling does not really affect the show viability, but the impact of fires that we can’t control would. Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation is committed to the preservation of our history, our natural resources and safety in all that we do. 

Staff members said they will evaluate the situation on a night by night basis.
