OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The fireworks show planned for Friday night to celebrate this weekend’s Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon has been canceled, but the evening’s concert is still on.

“Due to the high wind speeds, the fireworks show tonight at 9:00PM is cancelled as the fireworks cannot go off with wind speeds over 15 MPH,” Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon officials said.

The free, family-friendly Finish Line Festival concerts at Scissortail Park is still set to begin at 6 p.m.

Special guest opener Jason Scott & The High Heat will be followed by headlining act, the Josh Abbott Band.

“The entire Oklahoma City community steps up to make the Memorial Marathon a Run to Remember,” Kari Watkins, Race Director, told KFOR last week. “This kickoff concert is our thank you to the runners, volunteers, Marathon partners and the community.”
