San Diego Bay New Year's Eve fireworks show cancelled

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Nothing says New Year's like fireworks, but there will be no show over San Diego Bay next week.

The Port of San Diego and Port Tenants Association sponsor the annual display. They way they have to cancel the show after an environmental group threatened to sue over pollution concerns.

Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation says it doesn't want to shut down the fireworks display, and it just wants the port to get the permits so the fireworks shows are legal and safe for the environment.

The port argues there's not enough time to file the permits before New Year's Eve.

CERF argues it notified the port 50 days ago and the port took no action to file the permits.
