WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Concerns about the weather have caused Botanica to cancel a fireworks show planned for New Years Eve.

The show is being called off because of the cold and the wind will likely be too strong to safely launch fireworks with the dry conditions. 

Botanica will remain open on New Years Eve.
