It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s skydiver Jeff Provenzano!

From left, Mary Ann Castro, Michelle Rabang, Maya Morales, 13, and Catiana Dias, 12, all of Greenwich, as well as all the people in the stands behind them, look up to watch as skydiver Jeff Provenzano descends from the sky above Port Chester High School’s Ryan Stadium. His performance was a novel highlight of the local Fourth of July festivities this year.
Port Chester native Jeff Provenzano appears tiny in the sky as his parachute opens over the Port Chester High School field.
Skydiver Jeff Provenzano, who grew up near the high school, descends over the trees adjacent to Park Avenue School, eventually landing on the softball field.
Stretched out on a cot on the grassy area to the left of the bleachers at Ryan Stadium, Matthew Bauer of Washington Street prepares to watch the skydiver and fireworks in complete comfort. No neck craning required!
After the skydiving demonstration, Josh Feldman (left), Roy Lespier and Andrew Feldman play patriotic tunes on mellophone with a small group of musicians representing the Westchester Brassmen.
In the glow of the light from the Port Chester High School belltower, spectators look up to watch the fireworks.
Fireworks sponsored by Neri’s Bakery, the Villages of Port Chester and Rye Brook and the Town of Rye light up the Port Chester High School football field and Park Avenue School in the background.
The sky filled with colorful pyrotechnics for a good 15-20 minutes.
Ricky, Karen and Jenna Provenzano of Quintard Drive, who are related to skydiver Jeff Provenzano, wait in the stands for the fireworks to begin.
The stands at Port Chester High School’s Ryan Stadium as well as the grassy areas around them are filled for the Fourth of July festivities on a perfect July night.
Fireworks create a silver and gold effect.
