Amway Family Fireworks' Fourth of July Celebration: On Saturday, July 1


If you are into crowds of folks packed onto the rolling green hills of Ah-Nab-Awen Park, then head early to this river bank park on Saturday, July 1 for the best seating options at the annual Amway Family Fireworks.

This annual event kicks off at 5:00 p.m. at this city park located in front of the  Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in downtown Grand Rapids and will feature a program from Townsquare Media who welcome their on-air personalities for a night of live bands before the 10:30 p.m. fireworks display.

In addition to this live entertainment show, there will be food trucks as well as a special Meijer Family Zone from 5-8 p.m. that will feature arts and crafts, fake tattoos and interactive yard games.

Attendees are asked to support their charity partner, Kids Food Basket (KFB), by bringing down snack-size sandwich bags to the Meijer Family Zone between 5-8 p.m.

KFB is local nonprofit committed to attacking childhood hunger by ensuring that lunch is not the last meal of the day for nearly 7,500 kids at 42 schools in Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Holland. Sack Suppers, as KFB calls them, are well-rounded evening meals that provide nutrition critical to the development of the brain and body.

If crowds are not your thing, then attend any one of the many parties that pop up along the river, or observe the festivities from any one of the many points around the city where observing is possible.
