4th of July Fireworks are Here to Light Up Your Independence Day


Ah, Independence Day. A day to remember that one time Will Smith saved everyone from an alien invasion and we all ate a bunch of hot dogs to celebrate…

This year, Independence Day lands on a Wednesday, which is kind of a bummer for those of us typically grinding away at work during the week. Due to this snafoo in extended weekend plans, many places are holding their annual 4th of July fireworks displays the weekend prior to the big day.

Find out for yourself where you can catch a glimpse of these dazzling, patriotic displays in Metro Detroit!
