There are many options for celebrating your Fourth of July holiday, but for locals, there is one clear favorite judging by the crowds that grow bigger and bigger each year: the annual Grand Rapids Fireworks presented by Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.
Hosted on Saturday, July 6th (instead of Thursday, July 4th), Grand Rapids Fireworks is presented in 2019 by a new sponsor, the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort, and will feature many of the benefits folks have come to enjoy at our city’s annual family-friendly celebration.
This year’s celebratory event of America’s birthday kicks off at 6 p.m. on the grassy banks of Ah-Nab-Awen Park located just steps from downtown’s Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. Folks often bring blankets and chairs to make a night of it.
This free event includes plenty of family-focused, fun activities as well as access to food trucks and merchandise vendors, but also hours of live entertainment until the main act of the night: an always fresh fireworks program starting at 10:30 p.m.
And while you have plenty of options of where to spend your fourth, those who want to extend the festivities in 2019 will be fortunate because of Saturday’s fireworks display.
