We would like to introduce you to the Bay City Fireworks Festival. We hold a 3 day festival to help celebrate our country’s independence. Our event takes place in two parks on both sides of the river which passes through our great City. It is a 100% volunteer Festival. This year will be even bigger and better than past years.
The Festival has something for everyone. The east side (Wenona Park) has entertainment. The West side (Veteran’s Park) has a carnival, beer tent and our Traders Alley Marketplace. Vendors display their wares, from homemade items, candles, sunglasses, jewelry, T-shirts and much more. The Marketplace is located near the entrance to the carnival. Most people who come to the West side will pass by going to the carnival or simply coming to enjoy the fireworks display.
Our fireworks displays are shot each night. The first two nights are about 10 minutes each but the last night is a gigantic 40 minute display that will take your breath away.
Included with this letter is an application and information. We would love to have you join us this year and give us a try. We look forward to hearing from you. My cell number is 989-233-2635 if you have any questions.
