Watch as firecrackers light up the city skyline, burst over Comerica park, illuminate the river, or crackle over Greenfield Village. Enjoy live music, food vendors, and family fun at area festivals. This summer is the perfect time to stretch out on a blanket, stare up at the sky and watch a dazzling light show across many Metro Detroit locations.
