Just a reminder that the Grand Rapids 4th of July Fireworks will not take place on July 4th. This year the Grand Rapids fireworks take place on Saturday, June 30 starting at around 9:00 pm on Pokegama Lake. This fireworks event started 34 years ago by Grand Rapids resident Leo Burley who offered his licensed pyrotechnic services. Burley passed away this March at the age of 82 so that left the city faced with having to find another pyrotechnic. Several fireworks groups were contacted but all were booked for this July 4th. People can still watch from the lake or at the Pokegama Golf Course. People can be shuttled from the Ground Round parking lot starting at 8:00 pm. So again this year’s fireworks display will be held on Saturday, June 30th.
