Excitement soars as the 2017 Oakland County Fair prepares for its grand opening at Springfield Oaks County Park in Davisburg. The fair, which opens July 7th and runs through July 16th, is presented by Oakland County Parks and features a wide range of 4-H events, musical acts, and amusement park thrills.
Wristbands and tickets are available online and at the gate. Tickets grant visitors access to all areas of the fair: from the roller coasters to the racing pigs.
As dusk sets, everyone settles into 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.

Let Oakland County’s NO HAZ Collection team help you safely dispose of household hazardous materials ranging from air fresheners and artist paints to propane cylinders and prescription medicines.
You’d be surprised just how many everyday items are considered hazardous waste. Many of the objects that help us in our daily lives become dangerous when disposed of alongside regular rubbish. Do you have an item you’re unsure about? Check the NO HAZ list of accepted and non-accepted materials or call the NO HAZ Hotline at 248-858-5656.
