West Michigan community says July 4th fireworks are on

The village of Constantine says their July 4 fireworks are still underway if the necessary funds can be raised.

Most Michigan residents have resigned themselves to the fact that staged fireworks will be few in number this year, but a small community just north of the Michigan-Indiana border says theirs is ready. The village of Constantine, located in St. Joseph County, says it believes it can host the event while adhering to guidelines recommended by state orders. The biggest obstacle the community faces in organizing the event is securing the necessary funds. When the announcement was made on June 18, the village said it still needed over $ 7,000 to make sure the fireworks would take place.

Donations can be denominated and sent by mail to:

July 4th fireworks display;
115, rue Pigeon Blanc
Constantine, MI 49042

The community funds the event through fundraisers, donations and money collected from spectators upon their arrival for the fireworks display.

Some of the recommended safety precautions for the event are as follows; It is recommended that spectators do not gather with people other than those you traveled with to attend the event. The village will not be able to monitor whether, or with whom, you partner in the field, and therefore the village cannot be responsible for your safety.
