What are some of your favorite memories of celebrating July 4th while growing up? Most likely, they include family, friends fireworks, fun, festivals and food! You still have time to plan the perfect patriotic way to celebrate Independence Day. In the spirit of celebrating our great nation’s birthday, here is your Southeast Michigan Independence Day Celebration calendar.
June 29 Start the celebration early by heading to the annual Hudson Mills Metropark Fireworks from 7 until 11 pm on Weds., June 29th. The entire family will enjoy beats and eats as a DJ will be spinning tunes before and after the pyrotechnic display. The cost is only $10 per vehicle before 5 pm and $15 after 5 pm. The park is located at 8801 N. Territorial Road in Dexter.
June 30 – July 3 If you’ve never attended the annual Salute to America celebration in the famous Greenfield Village of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, this is the year to check it out. This four-day celebration of our great nation’s independence is full of fun for the entire family. You’ll be mesmerized while you watch the fantastic fireworks display and listen to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra play Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and other beloved classics. There are games of yester-year and today for children of all ages, and lots of activities. Insider-tip, buy tickets ahead of time and bring layers because it may become chilly in the evening. Pack a cooler or picnic basket with beverages and enjoy an al fresco dinner with your family and friends in front of majestic fireworks.
July 2 If you’re building in our beautiful new home community, Wexford Manor of White Lake, you won’t need to go far to view fabulous, free fireworks! Head to Goodrich Park in White Lake to see this annual fireworks display which is put on by the White Lake Rotary.
July 3 The skies of downtown Plymouth will be ablaze on Sunday, July 3rd when this fantastic, free fireworks display begins. Beforehand, enjoy a good old fashion picnic with your family and friends in the Township Park located at 46640 Ann Arbor Trail in Plymouth. Insider tip—the Living Word Church at 46500 N. Territorial Road welcomes visitors to the church lawn starting at 7:30 pm so that they can get great views of the display. There will be a bounce house, games, car and bike show, and free parking for the fireworks.
