No waterball at Strassenfest; fireworks still on hold | Events
The drought has now impacted Jasper’s annual Strassenfest celebration.
The fire department’s annual waterball competition has been canceled and the status of the fireworks remain…well..up in the air.
The city is still trying to conserve water and fire danger is still present because of the lack of rain this summer.
Conservation efforts have helped as residents are again being allowed to water their lawns and gardens, but the area’s rainfall total is about 10 inches below normal.
There’s a chance a new event might be added to replace waterball.
