Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks Display
The tradition of a fireworks show in Fowlerville dates back many years. Originally, a fireworks show was part of the annual Fowlerville Fair. On July 4, 1976, as part of a community wide Bicentennial Celebration, the Fowlerville Fire Department held a fireworks show, and a tradition began. It grew into an annual 4th of July event with many activities, a parade, and the fireworks show being the finale of the 4th of July celebration.
With the success of the annual event, a committee was formed to plan the fireworks show, parade and activities. Locally, the committee is known as the 4th of July Committee. Fundraising for the fireworks show, which exceeds the cost of $10,000, is done primarily by donations collected by the Committee Members each year, prior to the fireworks show. Any activities are sponsored by local business owners, organizations, and efforts by the Committee.
If you are interested in participating as a parade entry, please abide by the Fourth of July Parade Rules. Safety for spectators and parade participants is critical. Therefore, ALL ITEMS MUST BE HANDED to spectators along the parade route. No throwing of candy or similar items will be allowed and parade participants must be alert for children at all times. Organizations/groups may distribute candy, small toy items, literature, brochures, etc. by handing them out directly to recipients at the curbside. The parade route is available at this link. The Parade will start promptly at 7 PM.
The fireworks show will start promptly at 10:15 PM! There are several viewing areas within the area: the Fowlerville Community Park and the Fowlerville Fair Grounds (West and East Entrances allow for parking). Other areas are available within the downtown.
