ONEONTA – The show will go on.
Though the parade and the fireworks at Oneonta’s First Night celebration have been cancelled, the festivities at Foothills are still scheduled from 5 p.m. to midnight, according to organizer David Hayes.
“Unfortunately, in Upstate New York, we are at the mercy of the weather,” he said. “But it was just going to be a wall of rain, and out of concern for people’s safety, we decided to cancel.”
