BOSTON (AP) — The annual Boston Pops July 4th concert and fireworks show is being moved up a day because of potential heavy rain ahead of Tropical Storm Arthur.

Organizers and public safety officials said Wednesday the celebration is being rescheduled to what appears to be the best of two potential bad weather days. Arthur is expected to pass well east of New England over the weekend.

State Police Col. Timothy Alben says security arrangements are ready to go since the public rehearsal would have been held Thursday night anyway. He says the performance could be cancelled Thursday if the weather isn't safe.

The performance takes place in the Hatch Shell along the Charles River Esplanade. Fireworks are set off from barges on the river. Thousands of people usually attend.
