Detroit’s spectacular fireworks show is back along the city’s riverfront — after being shot off Lake St. Clair for the last two years due to the pandemic. Hart Plaza and other prime viewing spots are expected to be packed with crowds. The theme for the 64th annual fireworks show is : “Hey Detroit, The Sky Shines for You.”

What’s new this year? Enhanced security by Detroit police. Expect officers to sweep for weapons thanks to 10 new mobile metal detectors created by Evolv Technology. The specialized devices work faster than ordinary metal detectors yet are highly accurate and offer a touchless experience.
