On what would have been his 90th birthday, a fitting display of colorful, illuminated umbrellas was put on Tuesday in honor of Latrobe-native and golfing legend Arnold Palmer.

The event at UPMC Field at Saint Vincent College in Unity was presented by the famed Pilobolus dance company and the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation. Saint Vincent students holding color-changing LED umbrellas moved to music and solved puzzles to “visually manifest the beauty of cooperation,” the organizers said.

The event culminated the “90 for 90” campaign — which honored 90 years of Arnold Palmer, who was born Sept. 10, 1929, in Latrobe.

The son of a groundskeeper at Latrobe Country Club went on to become a two-time PGA Player of Year and won seven major championships. Palmer died in 2016.
