Community members gathered outside of the Dormont Swimming Pool on Sun., July 4 for the Dormont Day Fireworks and Fourth of July Celebration. The festivities also served as a celebration for the Dormont Pool’s 100th year, and the firework display was the largest in the borough's history.

People started gathering for the Fourth of July celebration at 7:30 p.m. where they claimed spots in the parking lot and the hillside. They purchased food from vendors, listened to music from DJ Brad Hlabach, and waited for the Dormont Day fireworks to commence at 9:30 p.m.
