Montgomery Borough has made the announcement that the traditional fireworks display will be happening on July 3 at the carnival grounds. It is requested that everyone maintain social distancing guidelines. The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company will open its kitchen at 5 p.m. The event is being jointly hosted by Montgomery Borough, the Montgomery Water Authority, and Brady and Clinton townships.
The fireworks display is one of my favorite Montgomery traditions, and I’m sure that many would agree with me. What’s more American than a great big fireworks show to celebrate our nation’s birthday? It seems like they just keep getting better every year.
For as much as the coronavirus has changed everything this spring, it’s nice to see that life is beginning to return to normal this summer. Guidelines are still in place and the rate of new COVID-19
infections continues to fall in Pennsylvania, but it’s nice to think that the worst seems to be behind us. But it’s still important to take precautions to avoid a second wave.
