Michigan Fireworks Shows

Watching fireworks in Michigan is a real pleasure, especially because there are so many opportunities to see shows breaking over the water in this state so appropriately named the ‘Great Lakes State.’ The land formation is basically two big peninsulas that are surround by water with lots of other smaller lakes, rivers and ponds in the interior. An interesting fact is that no resident of this quite populous state lives more than six miles away from a natural water source! During the holidays, at festivals and other special events, Michigan pyrotechnic shows light up the skies and the sparkling reflections are almost always reflected back down on the lakes – beautiful!

In the winter months, it can get very cold in Michigan. But visitors and natives alike put the zing back into freezing with exciting Michigan fireworks displays that electrify the night sky. One event well worth bundling up for is Zehnders Snowfest, a national class snow sculpting festival that takes place during the end of January each year. The fun-filled Snowfest takes place in Frankenmuth and includes everything from snow sculpting and ice carving competitions and children’s activities to live entertainment and a firework show. For New Year’s Eve, there are lots of firework shows in the state of Michigan. In Grand Rapids, fans can enjoy the largest indoor fireworks display after the Grand Rapids Griffin’s hockey game. Or, head out to one of the other big towns and watch to sky light up in festivity.

For the Fourth of July, Grand Rapids visitors and residents can enjoy a Michigan fireworks show at Ah-Nab-Awen Park on the shores of the Grand River in downtown. In addition to fireworks, live entertainment and plenty of patriotic activities are on the agenda and this fun family event. Greenville Village’s ‘Annual Salute to America’ takes place around July 4th in Dearborn, Michigan and features all the expected festival festivities along with a toe-tapping, patriotic firework show set to music by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Also around the 4th of July, Rochester Hills holds a firework show as part of the ‘Festival of the Hills.’ All the free family fun happens in Borden Park and includes games, live entertainment and Michigan’s 2nd largest fireworks show. Mt. Clemens, Michigan is host to a ‘Stars and Stripes’ festival that spans the 4th of July weekend and includes concerts, food, fun and an impressive display of pyrotechnics. Other fireworks shows are planned for various cities and towns across the state of Michigan including Leonard, Brownstown, Lexington, Holly and many others.
