Last year at this time, we were dealing with the cancelation of fireworks displays across the state of Michigan. Thankfully, that is not the case this year.

There are plenty of fireworks displays to see in mid-Michigan and north. Here's a list of some displays in the area and in northern Michigan, including some amazing displays you can watch from the state's beaches. Obviously, this list doesn't include every display in the state but it does include some of the closest ones to us and some of the best to the north.
