The Parade Company is excited to pump up the City of Detroit on June 24th as we produce the 61st Ford Fireworks along the Detroit River. The Ford Fireworks will begin at 9:55 p.m. The Parade Company is proud to bring this spectacular summer tradition to our great community.
Ford activities at the Ford Fireworks include:
- Hart Plaza: Ford will sponsor live entertainment and giveaways in Hart Plaza from 5-9 p.m.
- Ford Focus on Freedom: Ford Fund will salute more than 200 current and former military members and their families during a special event at the Port Authority Building with a close-up view of the fireworks.
- Vintage planes flyover: Ford is again working with the Yankee Air Museum to bring in World War II bombers and other historic aircraft to fly over the riverfront before the fireworks. The flyover is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
