Mahanoy Area Students Bring Back Fireworks Show

For the first time in five years, a fireworks show will be back with a bang over a Schuylkill County community and it’s thanks to a group of high school students.

The students at Mahanoy Area started an effort to raise money for a show and have succeeded, but we found they’re not done yet.

Fireworks shows are such a big part of the Independence Day celebration in so many communities.

But since 2009, all has been quiet above the Mahanoy Area High School football stadium.

Until seniors Greg Merchlinsky and Tyler Cavenas along with some other Mahanoy Area students decided it’s time to bring back the blasts, booms and bangs.

Mahanoy City will be holding a community day on July 5th to go along with the fireworks. The students are planning many fun activities for that day too.

They said the more money they raise for fireworks, the better the show will be.
