About this grant

This grant to the Flint Downtown Development Authority will support a fireworks display for both the 2023 Flint Juneteenth celebration and Independence Day festivities in July. The grantee and several community partners, including the city of Flint, have organized a series of family friendly activities for a multiday Juneteenth celebration, including a parade from Max Brandon Park to Riverbank Park in downtown Flint. Independence Day will also include a combination of performances, activities and fireworks. The events aim to bring the community together to commemorate important historical events in this country.
