There will be a lot of disappointed locals I’m sure.” The annual show is the chamber’s biggest fundraiser, normally bringing in about $15,000. Maluccio said the chamber is giving Crescenta Valley High time to determine if the field could withstand a fireworks show next year. Organizers will start work early. “If they don’t think it will handle 5,000 people on it, then at least we have time to make arrangements for next year,” she said. “We don’t want to throw something together that’s not a good show.” [email protected] LA CRESCENTA – For the first time in 17 years, there will be no Fourth of July fireworks show here. Organizers were unsure whether a new synthetic grass turf being installed at Crescenta Valley High School could withstand the thousands of spectators that attend the event, so they canceled it. “It’s new to everybody,” said Jean Maluccio, executive director of the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce. “Nobody knows what these turfs can hold up to.” Before the field’s installation, which the chamber helped fund, more than 5,000 paid spectators assembled on a grass field at the school every year. Tens of thousands more watched from home, the street or from local parking lots. last_img
