The Ford Detroit Fireworks celebration is officially set to light up the international riverfront, but not to the viewing public. Instead, the annual fireworks show will only be televised with a special broadcast honoring frontline workers and heroes in their everyday fight with the coronavirus.
The Parade Company and Mayor Mike Duggan announced the annual Detroit fireworks show will take place Monday, Aug. 31st. "Detroit is one of the most remarkable and resilient cities in America and we are proud to bring the Ford Fireworks to our community in a very special way this year,” said Tony Michaels, president and CEO of The Parade Company in a news release. “We have an unwavering commitment to this tradition, which has brought us together as one for over six decades, and are grateful to Mayor Duggan, the City of Detroit, WDIV Local 4 and our many amazing partners who are joining efforts to make this possible.”
Even with the easing of Michigan's stay-home order, I don't think to many people are ready to attend events with large gatherings. Peep the comments from Michigan residents below.
