      Hi Leigh,

      We’re so sorry to hear that you and your daughter missed the fireworks.

      Unfortunately, the annual fireworks are run by the Township of Upper Darby, therefore we have no control over admission fees. The PAC simply assists in the promotion of the event.

      Hope this information helps!
