Detroit Closed for Fireworks

Jul 1, 2024

The Detroit fireworks were once a day of fun and family, but no more. City officials have decided to close all city parks up and down the river, including the entire Detroit Riverwalk. The only place to set up a picnic is Belle Isle and you have to be there early to get a spot. Otherwise, you have to be crammed into Hart Plaza and Campus Martius.

Officials can open the city for the NFL draft and the Grand Prix, but for local events, we get crammed into sardine cans.
