The fireworks were held more than a week ago. Actually, Monday, June 21st, earlier than usual. They are always kinda early around here. The event takes place over the Detroit River. Rather breathtaking. For those that ask why so early, I wish I could offer the reason being, because we share this celebration with our friends across the water in Windsor, Ontario. They have Canada Day and we have the Fourth. But this year, even that didn't make sense. So to answer the question "why so early"? I really do not know.
