June 25, 2021 – After a one-year hiatus, Midland’s Independence Day festivities are back with a bang – literally! Join City of Midland Parks and Recreation for live music, food and beverage vendors, and an awesome fireworks display on Sunday, July 4 beginning at 8 p.m. on the west lawn outside Dow Diamond (825 E. Main Street).

The free event will include music from Slick Jimmy, Midland’s favorite 80s rock band, beginning at 8 p.m. Vendors will be on-hand to offer food and beverages for purchase. At dusk (roughly 10 p.m.), guests will be treated to an outstanding Fourth of July fireworks display launched from the St. Charles softball diamonds. Fireworks will be visible from the outside grounds of Dow Diamond, Founders Park, Whiting Overlook Park, and other downtown locations. 

For safety purposes, St. Charles Street and Towsley Street will be closed from 6 a.m. on Sunday, July 4 to 6 a.m. on Monday, July 5. Crews will also close the Chippewa Trail between the Tridge and Whitman Drive, including the Chippewa Trail leg of the Tridge, on Sunday, July 4 from 6 a.m. to midnight.

For the safety and enjoyment of all spectators, personal fireworks like sparklers, firecrackers, and other items – including alcohol! - will be prohibited in City parks. Please properly dispose of all trash items and do not leave them behind. As an additional safety measure, please consider leaving your pets at home while you enjoy the fireworks event.  Midland Police Department will patrol parks during the fireworks show.
