Fireworks

You know that summer has truly arrived in Windsor and Detroit when the fireworks shoot off. Originally planned to coincide with the International Freedom Festival, this was the 50th annual installment of the local celebration.

Although the IFF has gone the way of the dodo bird, killed off by Windsor City Council a few years back, the fireworks live on, although this year on a Monday as opposed to the usual Wednesday. This was done to coincide with the end of the River Days Festival in Detroit. On the Windsor side, the Summerfest (the replacement to the IFF) is just getting underway.

Enjoy the photos if you missed it, or if you’re one of the many out of towners/former residents who check in…
