Heather Raulerson

One of my favorite summertime holidays is the 4th of July. As a photographer, I love taking photos of the fireworks bursting overhead. And I’m always looking for some of the best firework displays in Southeast Michigan. The wonderful thing is that this year we are finally getting back to celebrating, and you and your family should have no problem finding a fantastic firework display by your neighborhood. I always loved looking around and seeing multiple fireworks displays going off simultaneously. Here is a list of just some of the firework displays happening around Southeast Michigan this 4th of July holiday weekend. Which ones are you planning on going to see?

Algonac Lions Pickerel Tournament Fireworks Night

Algonac FireworksHeather Raulerson

Pick your spot to watch the fireworks early by staking your claim with blankets or lawn chairs. Also, the earlier you get to Algonac, the better parking choices you will have available. Be prepared to pay for parking unless you know someone living in Algonac that has a spot saved for you. The Algonac Pickerel Tournament Fireworks are, I believe, one of the best displays around Metro-Detroit. The event usually lasts over 20 minutes starting at dusk. I really like when some of them, depending on the wind, can burst way over your head, and it feels like you are under an umbrella of fireworks.
