Gentle reader, are you looking to celebrate some independence this long weekend? No matter where you are, you can find the closest fireworks display in Michigan over at MichiganFireworks.com. In terms of fireworks displays in Washtenaw County, tonight there are displays at Hudson Mills Metropark and in Manchester. EJ and I are quite fond of the Whitmore Lake fireworks display. It will be tomorrow night and I'd recommend bringing a blanket and finding a nice spot on the southwest side of the lake. Protip: after the fireworks display at Whitmore Lake, traffic getting on US 23 will be terrible. You can avoid all the traffic if you start driving south back to Ann Arbor on Whitmore Lake Road. There are also nice, unofficial fireworks displays in some neighborhood parks in the city.
