If you love all things bright, colorful, and loud and you’re in or within a short drive’s distance of Detroit, then you’re going to want to start making tracks for tonight’s Ford Fireworks presentation. The 2019 Ford Fireworks kick off at 9:55 p.m. this evening with the theme “Detroit. Ready! Set! Go!!” and last for 24 minutes.

Leading up to the event, Ford is teaming with the Yankee Air Museum to fly vintage World War II fighter plans and other historically significant aircraft over the riverfront, which works in harmony with Ford Fund’s special salute for 200 active and retired military servicepeople and their family. These special people will get one of the best views of the fireworks in the city from the Port Authority Building.

Other guests will be clambering to the Ford Fireworks Rooftop Party, which includes live music from Your Generation in Concert, food, and entertainment in addition to great views of the fireworks. Ford has been the presenting sponsor of The Parade Company’s Rooftop Party — and the namesake of the annual fireworks show — since 2013

“Ford has a long history of supporting local traditions that bring Detroiters together, and we are proud to have the Ford name on this great fireworks display put on by The Parade Company,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund. “As one of the city’s premier community events, the Ford Fireworks gives people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to celebrate our independence and honor those who have fought for our freedom.”

If you can’t be there in person, you can catch this year’s Ford Fireworks on WDIC-Local 4 starting at 8 p.m.
