Thank you to Sky Elements Drones Company for putting on an amazing show in light of the technical difficulties that you had to contend with.

As many of you attended and witnessed the technical difficulties at the start of the show, Sky Elements was able to restart the show with a minimal gap in time.

Although the planned time on the show was 20 minutes. the battery life of the drones are limited to a specific time. With the unintended flight of one grouping of drones at the start of the show, it forced them to cut the show short, which did not allow them to see several of the planned animations. Please see attached for a list of all planned animations in the show.

In 2022, when the Paragon family caught wind that there would no longer be a firework show for Sapulpa’s Independence Day Celebration, they had just attended a drone show in another state. They immediately found and called the company that did the performance (Sky Elements). With just a few days to react, they were able to put together an amazing and unique performance. We are excited about the option of a drone show as it allows all of our many families that have a sensitivity to the loud booms, such as veterans, those with special needs, as well as our pets that can’t attend a traditional firework show to be a part of the night. This is not a replacement to traditional fireworks, as we love them too! This is just a unique opportunity to bring something new to Sapulpa. With all the options to view fireworks around the community, this is just the option we choose to support.

As you know by the flags that line our property, Paragon is a very patriotic company. We all need to focus on the celebration of Independence Day and what that means for our country. It’s in our hearts to be able to add a celebration that all people can attend and that brings a safe option for our community.

Thank you again for being part of a great night, and we can’t wait to celebrate again!

Thank you,
Paragon Industries
