Fireworks No More.

For the past bunch of years, the great city of New Kensington
has provided it's loyal citizens with a fireworks show in celebration
of the 4th of July.

It generally took place the weekend before the 4th, as they would never want
to jeopardize their relationship with the city of Springdale, and it's yearly
fireworks extravaganza, by doing the show on the same night.
(What if we all got banned from eating Glen's?)

God forbid we steal some of their Zambelli inspired thunder.
(Are there a bunch of people that get burned every year in Dynamo country, or is that our imagination?)


So anyways, we just found out that there will be no fireworks at all in the NEWK this year.

Other than the sparklers you are legally allowed to buy at Giant Eagle.


I mean, it was never the greatest of shows, but it's the thought that counts.

In place of fireworks, there will be a bunch of people that just walked in from Philly.

You read that right.

Yeah, there is a PA Hero Walk ending at Valley's football stadium on the 4th.

Don't get us wrong, it's for an amazing cause.

The walk will raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, a national initiative assisting soldiers injured in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But think about it...

If you just walked 342 miles, wouldn't you like to see some Independence Spirit?

Hell, what's another 3 mile walk to Springdale gonna hurt?
