DETROIT — The Ford Fireworks will light up the sky at 10:06 p.m. June 23, with views of the Detroit River in downtown Detroit. Created and produced by The Parade Co., this annual event now in its 56th year, attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators for one of the most anticipated summer nights in Detroit.
The Parade Co. will bring in Zambelli Fireworks Internationale to feature more than 10,000 pyrotechnic effects visible for miles along the Detroit River. This year’s show will be choreographed by the world-renowned Patrick Brault, who has designed pyrotechnic displays internationally, including the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
“Ford Motor Co. is honored to partner with The Parade Co. to support one of Detroit’s signature annual events,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Co. Fund and Community Services. “Ford is deeply committed to our community, and we are proud to be a part of bringing people together to celebrate our great city.”
The Ford Fireworks can be viewed on WDIV-Local 4’s live broadcast beginning at 8 p.m. News/Talk 760 WJR will do a special radio simulcast throughout the event and provide up-to-the-minute traffic and weather information throughout the day.
