    As the potential for rain threatened parts of the Philadelphia region, some municipalities (especially south and east of the city where storms are expected hit hardest) postponed fireworks displays set for July 4th.

    Collingswood, New Jersey pushed its fireworks back to Tuesday night.

    In Pennsylvania, Washington Crossing Historic Park postponed its fireworks until Friday night. And, Aston postponed its show until Sunday night.

    In Philadelphia, the Wawa Welcome America fireworks went off as scheduled along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

    A trio of Delaware towns postponed fireworks.

    Newark, Delaware pushed its fireworks show at the University of Delaware's Athletic Complex until Tuesday night at dusk.

    In Dover, the fireworks display has been rescheduled for Sept. 3. The parade, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., has been canceled, as well as evening concerts and other activities.
