The pyrotechnic spectacular  will be launched from the Oswego Harbor breakwall and barges at 9:30 p.m. on July 25.

By themselves the fireworks are sensational, but when coordinated with music the spectacular event becomes even more exciting, exhilarating and emotional.

Once again, Galaxy Communications will present the live broadcast of the music on TK99.5 or 105.5 to accompany the colorful array of  the Entergy Nuclear sponsored world class Grucci fireworks.

Festival-goers can  listen to either station or use the free TK99 app to listen to the music on a smartphone, but the audio will also be heard at all of the parks throughout Oswego Harborfest.

Not only does Entergy Nuclear sponsor the Gruci fireworks display, but numerous employees have, for years, generously donated their time to assist in setting up the display as they receive hands on experience in being a major part in contributing to the enjoyment of hundreds of thousands of festival-goers.

Oswego Harborfest Executive Director Doug Buske is excited over this year’s world-class pyrotechnics production and the sponsorship from Entergy Nuclear.

Buske said, “This would not be possible without the continued support of Entergy Nuclear. Our relationship has been tremendous as the Grucci fireworks are the cornerstone of Oswego Harborfest. Not only am I appreciative of the fireworks sponsorship,  but I can’t thank the dedicated Entergy employee enough for what they do for our festival and community.”

Continuing he said, “They are an integral part, along with all of our volunteers,  that make Oswego Harborfest possible. Many of the Entergy employees have come back year after year and many take time off to be part of providing an event that will make everyone happy and feeling good.”

Adding to the event is the musical soundtrack and it is important to have media support for the extravaganza.

Oswego Harborfest Public Relations Director Bill Foley said, “The media sponsorship by Galaxy Communication in providing TK99 and 105.5 as the place where our fireworks music can be heard simply adds another positive layer to the event. Fireworks are something to remember, but the entire experienced is enhanced by the music provided by these Central New York radio stations.”

Oswego Harborfest continues to be one of the few admission free festivals in the nation with top name, nationally recognized names on the stages as well as the Strates Midway and much, much more.
