As dusk sets, everyone settles in to their lawn chairs and blankets. The light from the sun disappears leaving nothing but a quiet chatter underneath a sky of stars.
A high pitched whistle sounds as the first firework is lit. The next 30 minutes are filled with resounding booms, snaps and crackles as red, white and blue colors decorate the night sky.
Fireworks displays are set off in honor of Independence Day all over the U.S. including many communities in and around Oakland County.
The Independence day holiday brings American’s together to celebrate a life of freedom and the joys of the American dream. Many celebratory events that take place on or around the Fourth of July are held at the close of or in conjunction with a running event, festival or parade.
