Rain literally washed out all the excitement at the Empire State Plaza on Tuesday. The fireworks that were scheduled for Tuesday evening were moved to Wednesday evening at 9 p.m.

Organizers said they wanted to err on the side of safety.

Before the storms hit, the plaza was packed and filled with lots of patriotic enthusiasm.

There was a naturalization ceremony, along with live music. However, headliner Sheila E. did not get to perform.
