Throughout the summer in Pure Michigan, communities across the state celebrate with fireworks — whether it’s for the 4th of July or just a Friday night at the ball park.
In honor of Independence Day, the photo theme on the Pure Michigan Facebook page this week was fireworks in Michigan. Since we received so many great submissions we wanted to share some of our favorites in the gallery below.

Mary Katherine Quasarano shares her “Pure Michigan Moment” of a visit to a favorite childhood spot, magical Mackinac Island.
Last year, our friends Phyllis and Vanessa, born and bred New Yorkers, traveled for the first time to Michigan to visit my daughter and me.

Phoenix Street is crowded as tourists mingle with locals walking to South Haven’s harbor and beach. It’s just after 7 p.m.—still a couple hours before sunset. A horse-drawn carriage waits to give paying customers a fairy-tale ride, and Harvey, the horse, patiently swishes his tail in response to the passersby who stroke his nose, pet his neck and give him well-meaning pats on the head. A ride sounds like fun, but I came for the sunset.
“The Gilmore Car Museum is so much more than just a tribute to a collection of historic automobiles” explains Keith Crain, Detroit publisher of AutoWeek Magazine. “With the museum’s newest construction projects, its onsite museum partners, incredible grounds, outstanding programming and world-class collections it is truly becoming the nation’s premier auto museum.”
