Fireworks 2023

Share This Post

There’s lots of high school sports news in the Lehigh Valley, but before we talk about that, allow me to mention the actual fireworks that you’ll be able to see once again this Independence Day holiday, live on the Astound TV Network.

ATVN is once again the exclusive home to the Fourth of July Fireworks Special, from J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown this Tuesday starting at 7pm.  In addition to the fireworks show (very roughly scheduled to take place after 9pm), we will have live music featured from area bands, interviews with local dignitaries as well as spectators and a special ceremony honoring our local veterans–all scheduled for the evening’s events.

Be sure to check out our entire day of patriot programming, starting at seven in the morning with our “Victory at Sea” marathon, counting us down to the fireworks show.

Now, for some of the local sports “fireworks.”

The end of the school year means the releasing of many districts and leagues’ “all-star” listings.

For today’s entry, we take a look at the volleyball “all-stars” in the Eastern Pennsylvania conference….
