Considering the fact that the hills of SoHum are still on fire, shooting off fireworks for the Fourth did not seem like a good idea. Fire officials didn't think so anyway.
Dee Way, executive director Garberville Redway Chamber of Commerce:
The 6 th Annual 4 th of July Community Picnic and Fireworks Display has been canceled. Cal Fire (formally known as CDF) sites fire danger and lack of resources for not issuing the permit required for the show. The Garberville Redway Area Chamber of Commerce will not be putting on any activities at the lake. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and wish you all a happy and safe holiday.
