4th of July Events In and Around Ann Arbor

How are you going to celebrate Independence Day in Ann Arbor?

I remember when we first moved to Ann Arbor back in 1981 and we use to go to the Ann Arbor Airport and watch fireworks with our children.

The City of Ann Arbor, sponsored by the Jaycees,  now has a parade that starts at 10:00 AM in downtown Ann Arbor. This years Grand Marshall is the University of Michigan Survival Flight. All kids are invited to decorate their bikes and ride along.

Get up early and join in the A2Firecracker, 5 K run.

Of course every town across America celebrates in their own unique way.

Whitmore Lake celebrates for three days, beginning on July 2nd with Fun runs,decorating boats and a reading of the Historical documents at the Library on the 4th.

On July 1st in Milan, Michigan fireworks will be held at the Milan Dragway. They begin at dusk.

Dexter celebrates the 4th of July at 7:00 with fireworks at Hudson Mills Park.

Devils Lake and Round Lake always celebrate with huge fireworks on the 4th with a barge out in the middle of the lake. It is really amazing to watch them over the water.

If you’re reading this and your community has an Independence Day Celebration, share with us in the comments.Remember we are Celebrating America’s birthday.

When the Declaration of Independence was declared,
John Adams wrote this historic letter to his wife:

“I am apt to believe that this day will be celebrated
by succeeding generations as the great anniversary
 festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of
deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion 
to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized 
with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, 
guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one 
end of this continent to the other, from this time 
forward forevermore.”
