Special thanks to all who participated in the raffle, which will help future Fourth of July activities.
Planning for the 2019 Monson Summerfest Fourth of July celebration has already begun and is sure to be special as Monson Summerfest turns forty. New events are being planned and the committee would like to invite the citizens of Monson to share their suggestions by writing to the committee at PO Box 113, Monson, online at www.monsonsummerfestinc.com, or by joining the committee when they meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 7:00 P.M. and the fire department.
NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Presented by Monson Summerfest Inc, M-Pact and Atlas Pyrovision Entertainment
Although the actual Monson Summerfest fireworks display scheduled for June 27th has been cancelled because of the covid-19 outbreak, the Summerfest Committee is aware of the disappointment and looked to see what else we could do!
Working with Atlas Pyrovision Entertainment and M-Pact, we will be able to provide a “virtual fireworks show” on June 27th (which was our scheduled date). Atlas will give us their pre-recorded entry to the Montreal International Fireworks Competition Show which M-Pact will air on June 27th on Channel 15. So you can spread out your blankets in front of your tv and see a great fireworks show from the comfort of your home. For those of you who do not have cable tv you can go on line and view the show from the M-Pact web site. Details will follow closer to the event.
M-Pact will also be running shows from past Monson Summerfest events throughout the day on July 4th. Please take a trip down memory lane and relive the past Summerfest’s that we have had.
Finally the Summerfest Committee is very disappointed but felt that we needed to cancel this year’s events due to the uncertainty of the rules and health regulations that will be in place for June and July. Let our “virtual” events fill the gap as we look forward to 2021!
