If You Can Dream It
What a gorgeous day!
The breeze cools your skin as you dip your arm into an ice cold cooler and grab a drink. It’s a beautiful Michigan day.
Hot dogs sizzle, watermelon drips, and potato salad comes by the bowl-full.
The sights and sounds, aromas and feelings stimulate all the senses. Rides, games, and booths exude fun and laughter bounces through the park, the sun reflecting off the lake. Baseballs smack gloves, and frisbees fly until dusk. Then suddenly, as if the day couldn’t get any better…
The dark, open sky erupts with color over the trees, showering sparks in hues of beautiful red, blue, yellow, and green.
“Oohs” and “ahs” are released from the crowd and the rockets whistle, whizz, and swirl, creating a vibrant atmosphere of light overhead. Energy is at an ultimate high and pupils are turned upwards as people watch in awe.
Savor this moment, this wondrous holiday, and take in the beauty –
It’s Fourth of July Fireworks!
At Fairlane Woods, we know 2020 was hard, and you’re aching to get out and enjoy the shows. Although somewhat limited this year, we put together the best fireworks shows near Dearborn, Michigan. See the following links for more info:
With the limited number of local free shows this year, Salute to America is one of the best ways you can experience the Fourth of July right here in Dearborn. The Henry Ford and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra put on this event annually, and while tickets are not free, the price is worth it. Three Detroit Symphony Orchestra performance areas with rotating ensembles will be playing during the four-day event. Street food, cold beer, treats and more along with a spectacular fireworks display top it off. The festival runs June 30-July 3rd, and tickets are available here.
South of Dearborn, Brownstown will be putting on a show July 3rd. It will be held at Lake Erie Metropark (32481 W Jefferson, Brownstown) and will take place at dusk. Plan to arrive early to claim your spot and to enjoy the park. A Metroparks vehicle pass is required to enter any Metropark. They can be purchased here.
Unfortunately, the downtown Detroit Ford Fireworks show will be broadcast only this year. They will return in 2022. More information at the above link!
