If you like firework displays, you’ll want to plan for the Grand Rapids Fireworks presented by Amway. Because the holiday is in the middle of the week, these fireworks will “go off” on Saturday, July 7. Get to Ah-Nab-Awen Park early and “put your dibs on” lawn space for this FREE event. Fireworks start at 10:30, but there are plenty of other family-friendly events at the Park earlier in the evening. See the event website.
