While the extremely hot weather may have been a cause for smaller than usual crowds, Rotary Club of Brazil President Duane Butt told The Brazil Times he was pleased with the turnouts.
"It's been hot, but (the crowds) have not been too bad," Butt said Wednesday, the last day of the week-long event.
"It was down because of the heat, but people have said we had a real nice carnival," Butt added.
Butt said working with Family Attractions Amusements -- the company that hosted the carnival -- was a joy.
"They are great people to work with," Butt said. "They want to come back. They were tickled to do this."
Rotary officials met earlier Wednesday and elected to reschedule their annual fireworks show for Sunday, Aug. 26. The fireworks display, put on by Aerial Arts Fireworks, will coincide with the season finale of the Brazil Concert Band.
"I think it was the right call not to have the fireworks (Wednesday)," Butt said.
Earlier in the week, Rotary officials and Aerial Arts Fireworks owner Mark Adamson met with Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham and Brazil Fire Department Chief Jake Bennett. During the meeting, it was decided the fireworks would be postponed due to weather conditions.
"I think most people realized (setting off the fireworks Wednesday) would be dangerous," Butt said. "But we can all come together again as a community in August."
Officials have not yet set a time for the fireworks display. They also stressed the date is tentative, weather permitting.
