Several years of light attendance prompted the cancellation of tonight’s annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display along the Downtown riverfront.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Minneapolis Riverfront Arts and Events Committee announced in November they would cancel the Dec. 31 display.

Instead, they will focus their efforts on the July 4th fireworks display, which also takes place over the Mississippi River near Downtown.
