DelGrosso’s Amusement Park announced on Facebook that today’s Summer Thunder 2016 is postponed to Friday or Saturday due to inclement weather.

Central PA 4th Fest Executive Director Karl Libhart, standing under a barely noticeable light rain, said there is no indication that the fireworks show on Penn State’s campus would have to be delayed. The rain date for 4th Fest, on the unlikely chance it is pushed back, is Tuesday.

DelGrosso’s said low visibility played a role in the decision. The annual Summer Thunder 2016 VIP Dinner Reception will be carried out as planned.

“We want our guests to have the most enjoyable Summer Thunder experience as possible, and unfortunately that is something that today’s weather will not allow,” DelGrosso’s said. “We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.”
