The evening do has been moved indoors rather wisely, this from Blackpool Council
"Unfortunately, the evening celebration that was due to take place on the Tower Festival headland between 4-7.30pm can no longer go ahead due to the weather conditions."
"Obviously this is disappointing but the safety of spectators and performers has to be our number one priority."
