Summer 2020 was a real dud and we ended up missing so much that we used to enjoy during the summer in western Michigan due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fortunately, events are starting to return in 2021, and while some communities have decided to put the July 4th festivities on hold this year, there are still plenty of events happening in West Michigan for you to enjoy with your friends and family. family.
The fireworks show in downtown Grand Rapids returns this year with the ever popular fireworks show in Grandville. Sadly, communities like Grand Haven have chosen to cancel their festivities this year (however, the Coast Guard Festival will be held this year and will have fireworks on the evening of August 7).
