No Fireworks on the 4th of July in Grand Rapids, MI?????

Fourth of July in Grand Rapids, MI. When is 4th of July in Grand Rapids, MI not 4th of July? When someone decided exciting and important things such as Fireworks gets delayed to the 5th of July.

This kind of reminds me of Rogers City, MI., a town up north on Lake Huron, where I grew up.  We use to have great 4th of July celebrations until one year the town council decided having a Nautical Festival the first weekend in August was much more important than the 4th of July. After that, 4th of July was just another day and residents left Rogers City and traveled to surrounding communities to see fireworks on the 4th. It’s no wonder that town today is a dying community; nothing exciting going on there anymore.

Let’s hope the City Fathers who make these decisions for Grand Rapids, MI don’t make the same mistake. We wave our flags and profess to be great Americans but on this one special day, a day celebrating our Independence, we cannot have fireworks to round out this special day because someone decided otherwise. How sad is that.
