Join us as we celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks, food and fun! The year’s 4th of July Celebration includes music from Atomic Radio, metro-Detroit’s premier pop cover band! Atomic Radio will rock out on the front lawn of the Dow Diamond at 8:00 p.m. followed by the crown jewel of the evening, the annual fireworks display at dusk. The fireworks can be viewed from the lawn areas around Dow Diamond (including Founders Park), Whiting Overlook Park, and many other downtown locations. In addition to the fireworks, vendors will be on hand with your favorite food and beverages to keep your family full. Bring your friends, family, and your lawn chairs and blankets to the event of the summer!
UPDATE! JULY 3, 2019:
Due to concerns regarding the location of a bald eagle nest along the Tittabawassee River, City of Midland Parks and Recreation has moved the launch location of the City’s fireworks display to the Old Redcoats Softball Complex.
To accommodate this change, St. Charles Street and Towsley Street will be closed from 6 a.m. on Thursday, July 4 to 6 a.m. on Friday, July 5. Crews will also close the Chippewa Trail between the Tridge and Whitman Drive, including the Chippewa Trail leg of the Tridge, on Thursday, July 4 from 6 a.m. to midnight.
This launch location change is not expected to impact the previously-suggested viewing area for the fireworks display. Optimal viewing areas include Whiting Overlook Park, Dow Diamond lawn (including Founders Park), Putnam Park, and other downtown locations.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
For the safety and enjoyment of all spectators, personal fireworks like sparklers, firecrackers, and other items will be prohibited in city parks. As an additional safety measure, please consider leaving your pets at home while you enjoy the fireworks event. Police officers will patrol the parks during the fireworks spectacular.
