2020 Event Cancellation

It is with regret that one of the longstanding highlights of every summer in the region, the 2020 fireworks show, held in conjunction with the Star Spangled Spectacular have been CANCELED. The SSS Committee and the event’s presenting sponsors had already agreed that all SSS activities would be canceled this year due to COVID-19 concerns….


Star Spangled Spectacular is proud to bring you a dramatic display of fireworks at dusk performed by Zambelli Fireworks.
