GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- While many people likely saw fireworks on the Fourth of July, there is a big fireworks celebration planned for the whole family this weekend in city of Grand Rapids.

The annual Amway Family Fireworks show kicks off Saturday night at 10:30 p.m.

Before the fireworks light up the sky, there will be a ton of free family-friendly activities at Ah-Nab-Awen park downtown starting at 5 p.m. Saturday.

There will be games, food, live music, arts and crafts and different vendors to shop.

"People can expect a lot of fun, a lot of good things happening. There will be food vendors out there, entertainment that's all free. Family and kid entertainment, kid games, yard games, they can look forward to bringing their own chairs, their own blanket and just enjoying a good time on the banks of the Grand River," saidĀ Evette Pittman, Supervisor of the Office of Special Events for the city of Grand Rapids.

    This certainly seems like a bad idea, which is not unusual for the city. The law says fireworks are legal, the day before, the day of, and the day after. Is the city above the law. Now all the fools in the neighbor hoods will think it’s alright to light off fireworks this weekend. There is dumb and there is dumber. I am sure everyone knows where the city of Grand Rapids fits in.
