"Our fireworks displays always draw big crowds to Municipal Stadium, and now with the support of Potomac Edison, we're planning our best show yet," said Suns general manager Travis Painter. "We appreciate this community-based initiative by Potomac Edison and we look forward to providing the people of Hagerstown with a show in the skies to remember."
