Michigan Fireworks Displays, 2020

As early as last May, many of our Michigan communities started cancelling their annual 4th of July events and fireworks displays.  This has left many residents feeling a little let down, especially with the holiday falling on a Saturday this year!  There are, however, a few places that are going forward with their celebrations–some with slight modifications.  If it’s just not the 4th to you without fireworks, start planning your road trip now!


  • Frankenmuth: Michigan’s Little Bavaria will have fireworks on Friday, July 3.  In order to allow for social distancing, fireworks will be viewable in areas throughout the city.  The entertainment events typically included in the celebration, such as inflatables and other children’s activities, have been cancelled.
  • Village of Breckenridge:  Celebration on July 4th will include a car show, 8k run/walk, and fireworks at dusk.
  • Alpena:  Fireworks will be on the 4th right after dusk.
