There was supposed to be a show in Beaver County to celebrate summer, America, and Beaver County, in a display over the confluence of the Beaver & Ohio Rivers.
Now, there will be two shows.
The first of those shows will take place on Saturday, June 27, as Beaver County Radio presents “Star Spangled Saturday”, where a trio of planes is set to fly over the rivers at 3:30pm. Beaver County Radio will present live coverage from 3-4pm from Laughlin Insurance Agency, with live patriotic music and interviews that will be streamed on Beaver County Radio’s Facebook page.
The display and broadcast is in conjunction with the efforts of PUSH Beaver County.
Redevelopment Secretary Tim Wetzel joined Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County to discuss how this all came about, the planning of these festivities amidst the pandemic, and the historic nature of the planes that will be flown over the rivers Saturday afternoon. Wetzel also spoke about the second show, an impromptu fireworks display from PUSH and Zambelli Fireworks, that will be shown in place of the originally scheduled 10th Anniversary Beaver County Boom on July 4.
