Summer Thunder® 2018 – “DelGrosso’s Great American Cinema Celebration”!

Tipton, Pennsylvania – The DelGrosso Family of Companies is gearing up for a summer time tradition like no other – Summer Thunder® 2018. This year’s annual fireworks extravaganza is themed as “DelGrosso’s Great American Cinema Celebration”!

“Each year we like to pick a theme for our show. This year’s theme will celebrate American favorites in film,” says Joe DelGrosso, Summer Thunder® Coordinator and President of DelGrosso Foods, Inc.   The sound track will still feature patriotic favorites but you will also hear some great movie tunes as well.

Summer Thunder® is set to a music soundtrack that is developed by Dave Villani of Data Music Services in Altoona. This year’s soundtrack includes a number of iconic theme songs from various movies. A special theme moment in the middle of the show will feature some classic movie lines that showcase the impact of these cinema graphic masterpieces and the impact that they have made and still make to this day. The fireworks are designed by Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics from Maineville, OH. Members of the Rozzi Family have been designing firework shows for DelGrosso’s Park for more than 50 years. Over 4,000 shells will light up the night sky in Tipton during the 30 minute pyro-musical spectacular.
