The Fourth of July is nearly here! All across Oakland County, communities are putting on firework displays in celebration of our country’s Independence Day. Visit Rochester Hills for their Festival of the Hills on June 28 and stay for the fireworks, or celebrate July 4th on the day itself in Huntington Woods. Wherever you decide to go, grab a blanket, pack a picnic basket, and get ready to shout, “OOH” and “AAH” as fireworks light up the sky across Oakland County.
