Detroit’s annual 2019 Ford Fireworks show.

After two years without a personal crowd, the Ford Fireworks returns to the Motor City in June.

On Monday, June 27, the fireworks will make a comeback on Detroit’s riverfront, once again welcoming a personal audience after last year’s broadcast-only event.

The annual fireworks show was a televised-only event in 2020 and moved to Lake St. Clair Metropark in Harrison Township in 2021 to prevent large crowds from gathering during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of people usually come together every year.

“We are excited to bring Ford Fireworks back to Detroit as this event really brings our community together and showcases the city in a special way,” said Tony Michaels, president and CEO of the Parade Company in a press release. “Ford Motor Company’s continued support is essential to ensure that this show, along with other much-loved Parade Company events, grows bigger and more vibrant each year for our community to enjoy.”

This year’s theme is “Hey Detroit, The Sky Shines for You!” The show will feature over 10,000 pyrotechnic displays set to music.

Ford also announced an expanded sponsorship of not only the fireworks, but also the Parade Company Rooftop Fundraiser presented by Ford, America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Gardner White and Hob Nobble Gobble presented by Ford.
