In case you missed them, Detroit’s annual Ford fireworks over the Detroit River took place last week. But there are still many places around the metro area to catch some dazzling displays in the sky. Especially with the mid-week holiday, fireworks around metro Detroit are spread out over the area and week. Here’s where you can see them.
Novi’s Stars & Stripes Festival lights up the sky a night early at the Suburban Collection Showplace. Fireworks start at about 10 p.m. A carnival and music stage (tickets required) are also part of the festivities.
Head up to the Packard Proving Grounds in Shelby Township for this year’s show. Concessions and activities are also set up; car buffs can check out the history there. Fireworks start at 10 p.m.
Greenfield Village continues its Salute to America. Pull up a chair to watch the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and The United States Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus. The concert and fireworks combine with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This is a ticketed event.
Clawson is celebrating in a big way, with a parade, an arts and crafts fair, a hot dog eating contest, and monster trucks (!). Fireworks will start around 10 p.m. in Clawson Park.
Watch the festivities downriver. Trenton’s fireworks start at dusk.
Heading further south, Gibraltar is also celebrating the whole day with carnival rides and a parade. Fireworks start at dusk.
The Detroit Tigers play the Texas Rangers Friday night. After the game, fireworks are planned at Comerica Park.
Ecorse will continue the festivities this weekend with a fireworks show at John Dingell Park.
Stay safe this holiday!
