About this grant
Since 2010, the Flint Downtown Development Authority has presented the official Flint Independence Day fireworks display. In 2018, Flint area residents gathered in multiple locations throughout the city including parks, neighborhoods, and community venues to watch the fireworks and celebrate the holiday. Beginning in 2017, the fireworks became a part of the Flint Symphony Orchestra community concert at Atwood Stadium, a partnership with the Flint Institute of Music. The fireworks are visible throughout the city and the grantee estimates 10,000 or more individuals watch the show in various locations each year. This grant will support the 2019 fireworks display.
