Fireworks to light up Macomb County sky beginning tomorrow

Fireworks have captivated people ever since they were invented in China over 2,000 years ago. At first, fireworks were simple orange and white bursts that were believed to ward off evil spirits, but, over the centuries, they have expanded to include an enormous variety of colors, shapes and sounds. Now we use them for all kinds of festivities! This summer, Macomb County has tons of firework events to choose from, so make sure you check out the “rockets’ red glare” and “bombs bursting in air” at one of these fantastic celebrations.
