GREENVILLE, N.C. - Towns in eastern North Carolina are keeping an eye on the weather, hoping that the Hurricane Arthur does not force them to cancel their July 4th events.

Morehead City made the decision to cancel events, canceling the Live at Five concert set to take place Thursday, evening. Tom Kies, the Executive Director of the Downtown Morehead City Revitalization Association, says that the decision was made so that no one was put in danger. Morehead City's firework celebration will be held Saturday, July 5 at 9 p.m.

Kies says that unless the crew and materials are unable to reach the launch site located in the Morehead City Harbor, Friday night’s concert and fireworks presentation will go on as planned. The Seaside Band will take to the stage at 7 p.m. and the fireworks will start at 9 p.m.
