Summer Thunder® 2021 – “A Salute To Those Who Kept America Going”!

Tipton, Pennsylvania – The DelGrosso Family of Companies is gearing up for a summertime tradition like no other – Summer Thunder® 2021. This year’s annual fireworks extravaganza is themed as a salute to those who kept working during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

“Each year we like to pick a theme for our show. This year’s theme will honor the hard-working men and women who kept our country going during the pandemic. We are all tremendously grateful to the people serving on the frontlines of COVID-19 in essential services. This includes healthcare workers, first responders, grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, postal employees, delivery drivers, auto mechanics, sauce factory workers, and so many more” says Joe DelGrosso, Summer Thunder® Coordinator and President of DelGrosso Foods, Inc.

The soundtrack will still include patriotic favorites, but you will also hear tunes that showcase and celebrate working.

Summer Thunder® is set to a musical soundtrack that is developed by Dave Villani of Data Music Services in Altoona.

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 2,599 shells will light up the night sky in Tipton during the 25-minute pyro-musical spectacular.
