Celebrate the 4th of July with Fireworks!

Fourth of July is right around the corner! We wanted to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to celebrate America before the big day on Saturday. So we compiled a list of fireworks and other fun happenings going on around Metro Detroit over the next week. Unfortunately some of the big ones, like the Detroit Fireworks and Stars and Stripes, have already passed, but there are still plenty of opportunities to see explosions in the sky and sport your red, white & blue.

Lake St. Clair Metropark Fireworks - Tuesday, June 30th:
Located in Harrison Township on 16 Mile Rd. at 31300 Metro Parkway, the fireworks start at 10 p.m. But the fun starts at 7 with The Happy American Band playing until 9:30 p.m. on the beach. Park admission is $10 after 5 p.m. or free with a Metro Park annual pass. Watch from the beach or bring your boat and watch from the water.

Greenfield Village - Salute to America - July 1st thru 4th:
This event truly celebrates America. There are picnics, games, a parade, a performance by the United States Army Field Band, fireworks with a soundtrack provided by the DSO playing Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, a canon will be fired, and much more. The celebration takes place from 6-10 p.m. each evening. Tickets range from $15-25 and can be purchase here.

Romulus City Fireworks - July 2nd:
These fireworks can be seen best from Wick & Ozga Roads or Elmer Johnson Park. Bring your lawn chairs and purchase snacks from food vendors on site. The fireworks are set to start at dusk!

Hazel Park Raceway - July 3rd:
Head out early and watch some ponies race, then stick around after the live races for the fireworks. Racing starts at 6:30 p.m. and the fireworks start right after the races. The raceway is located at 
1650 E 10 Mile Rd. in Hazel Park. 

These fireworks take place on Sylvan Lake in Keego Harbor. The best place to watch is from Memorial Park at Garland and Pontiac Drive. It's free to get in, but plan on paying for parking. There are also shuttles running from Gino's Pizzeria.

Gibraltar 4th of July Festival - July 4th:
Gibraltar has been doing it for 51 years, so they must know how to do it right!
