You'd normally head to the Abilene Zoo for the annual July 4th fireworks show, except this year the date has changed.

It will be one day earlier, on July 3. 

The organizer of the private event says he chose to change the date after he was informed that the zoo closes later on Thursdays and he would need to zoo to be cleared out by then. 

However, we were informed by the city of Abilene that they will be closing the zoo at 5 p.m. this July 4th and not at 9 p.m.

The organizer of the event tells us, he had no idea about these changes.
