It has been a year of cancellations but that has not deterred the Emlenton Summer Festival Committee from continuing on with tradition. Although the Emlenton Summer Festival was cancelled, the fireworks will go on.
The spectacular fireworks display over the Allegheny River will once again fill the skies of Emlenton on Saturday, July 11th. Load up the car and bring the entire family. The Emlenton fireworks provides a unique setting high above the Allegheny which leaves a crescendo in the valley that echoes its way down river. The fireworks are a prominent display which catches the essence of sight and sound.
Pyrotecnico will provide the show which will begin around dusk. The fireworks will be set off across the river as in previous years. Viewing can be seen from downtown and up on the hill.
Anyone who would like to make a donation can send to: The Emlenton Summer Festival Committee, P.O. Box 22, Emlenton, PA 16373.
Don’t forget on Friday, July 10th the Emlenton Firemen will be holding their annual Strawberry Festival. They will have a variety of food on hand including their famous hot sausage sandwiches. The firemen will be serving food on Friday, July 10th only from 10 am to 8 pm.
If you miss them for lunch then you can join them for dinner or just join them for both.
