Fourth of July Fireworks Displays in West Michigan

July 2024

If you’re vacationing here, arrive early so that you can find a good place to park. Be sure to check the weather forecast so that you don’t get caught unprepared when the night temperatures settle in. Give yourself plenty of time to get an ice cream cone, and then just relax and watch the sunset. Perhaps you will find a great spot on the beach, or you might prefer to bring a lawn chair and enjoy watching people have fun around you while you wait for the fireworks to begin at dusk. 

There are a variety of activities over the 4th, including parades, art fairs, and more. Make the most of your holiday, right here in West Michigan.
