The fireworks are being rescheduled due to their being rained out in May.
Kent County Tourism Corporation will be providing fireworks in conjunction with Dover Comic Con on Friday, Aug. 5.
The fireworks will start at dusk on Legislative Mall. That date will stand as the makeup date for the Dover Days fireworks that were cancelled due to rain on May 6.
“Kent County Tourism is happy to be able to add fireworks to the Comic Con lineup due to the Dover Days display being rained out,” Wendie Vestfall, executive director for Kent County Tourism said.
“Comic Con is a great family event. Year after year the attendance continues grow and the fireworks will make a great addition to the activities they have planned” she said. “It’s a perfect fit for our rain date of Dover Days fireworks.”
