Downtown Grand Rapids was lit up for the Fifth of July with the Amway Family Fireworks.

A few thousand people came to Ah-Nab-Awen park to enjoy some food, drink, music, entertainment, activities and, of course, the 20-minute fireworks spectacular!

Music from The Rhythm Aces, Vox Vidorra, and Three's a Crowd performed into the evening, as well as some amazing acrobatics and aerial work from the Daredevil Circus Company!

Fireworks Season Means Enjoying Community Displays, Celebrating Safely [Video/Infographic]

It's the season for fireworks, which are synonymous with Independence Day celebrations.

July 4 marks the 238th anniversary this year of the United States' independence from England through the Declaration of Independence. It means celebrating our nation's founding through community events, with professionally-done aerial fireworks displays such as the Amway Family Fireworks on July 5 at Ah-Nab-Awen Park in downtown Grand Rapids.

If consumer fireworks are used at home or elsewhere, enjoy them safely to protect lives and property while embracing Independence Day.
