WINDBER, Pa. -- One fire department in Somerset County is bringing back a much-needed celebration but will lose another.

Windber Borough will no longer host Windber Rumbles to collaborate with Thunder in the Valley but they are bringing back an event the community has been asking for.

"The department has made huge strides," Captain at Windber Fire Department Anson Bloom said. "We've come a long way since the Henry Era, we've decided the residents have asked for years and years about bringing this event back. We figured it was time, it was a good time. The fire department is stable, we're growing overnight and the timing was right for this event."

The last time Windber held the event on July 4 was six years ago.
