The Hudson Mills fireworks in Ann Arbor were a little too early in my opinion, and took place on June 28. If you miss the 4th of July fireworks altogether, you might want to go down to Comerica Park for a Tiger's game on a Friday night during the summer. They have fireworks weekly! See related article: Coming to Comerica Won't Break the Bank. I also saw on the list that Jackson has an end of summer fireworks display on August 30.

All this information came from, which is run by a local woman as a "hobby site". Now that's someone I can related to!! :)

I heartily recommend the fireworks shows after Friday night Tiger games; they're very worthwhile. The Tigers do a good job of putting together good shows.

SGT - I haven't been there for the fireworks in years. I'll be sure to add that to our summer "to do" list. :)

Netmeg - You are quite welcome. I posted about it last year, too, and I know that both years I got lots of hits that must have inevitably led to your site. Thanks for keeping that going!
