Summer Thunder 2014 Fireworks Show and Traffic Details

Tipton, Pennsylvania –  The DelGrosso Family of Companies is gearing up for a summer time tradition like no other – Summer Thunder®2014.  This year’s annual fireworks extravaganza is themed as a “100th Birthday Tribute to Our Founders, Fred & Murf DelGrosso.”

 “My mother and father were the heart and soul of DelGrosso Foods and DelGrosso’s Amusement Park.  If they were still with us today they would each be turning 100 years old this year.  We thought it would be nice to still throw a celebration in their honor, and Summer Thunder® was the perfect way to do that,” says Joe DelGrosso, Summer Thunder® Coordinator and President of DelGrosso Foods. 

 The opening song to Summer Thunder® 2014 will be dedicated to the memory of Cindy DelGrosso Gardella, who passed away earlier this year.  Cindy is one of the seven children of Fred & Murf DelGrosso.  She was also one of the owners of both DelGrosso Foods, Inc. and DelGrosso’s Amusement Park.

 Summer Thunder® is set to a music soundtrack that is developed by Dave Villani of Data Music Services of Altoona.  The fireworks are designed and built by Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics from Maineville, OH.  Members of the Rozzi Family have been designing firework shows for DelGrosso’s Amusement Park for more than 50 years.  Over 4,000 shells will light up the night sky in Tipton during the 25 minute pyro-musical spectacular.
