Most of the work complete at the Fourth Fest launching pad. Close to 15,000 shells are loaded for the Fourth of July night show, but other aspects of Fourth Fest remain a work in progress. There are significant new developments this year at Fourth Fest. For the first time, fireworks from Spain not China will light up the sky, and there's a new executive director. Frank Savino has been involved with various aspects of Fourth Fest for years, and now he has a different perspective from the director´┐Żs chair. He says obtaining the required, dozen different permits for the event alone was an eye opener. Now he's looking for help more volunteers. Savino says he's awed and thankful for the work already done by the hundreds of volunteers. A reminder Fourth Fest begins with the 4K run at Beaver Stadium in the morning, then there's the parade downtown, and then the numerous events around the stadium, until the fireworks show which begins just after 9:15 p.m on the Fourth.
