Pearl Harbor July 4th fireworks cancelled
Navy officials cite sequestration, budget cuts
Navy officials tell KITV4 News that sequestration and budget cuts are factors in the cancellation of the July 4th fireworks at Pearl Harbor this year.
This comes after Marine Corps Base Hawaii announced it is cancelling BayFest 2013 for similar reasons.
Pearl Harbor says there will be a low-key celebration for Independence Day during the daytime.
