ABINGTON SKY GOES BOOM ON SATURDAY
We’re discouraged from saying the F-word to describe Saturday night’s planned event in order to keep away out-of-town riff-raff. But, yes, there are fireworks scheduled for Saturday night at 8 p.m., courtesy of Abington Celebrates. The volunteer party planning committee had to cancel the annual Founder’s Day pyrotechnical display the past two years. With the final Coombs Foundation 5K on Sunday, scheduling a field day and evening fireworks on Saturday just made sense.
