Saturday, July 6, 2019 - 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for the annual Independence Day fundraiser. Front Row for the Fireworks, offers visitors an evening of entertainment, discovery and fun. Front Row for the Fireworks will take place on Saturday, July 6 to coincide with the City of Grand Rapids’ celebration.

In addition to having front row seats underneath the fireworks, the night includes patriotic music playing on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, live sky shows in the Chaffee Planetarium, rides on the 1928 Spillman Carousel, as well as a unique Museum-wide scavenger hunt for the family.

At dusk, visitors can head outside to the enclosed lawn seating areas or stay inside the Museum in air-conditioned comfort to have an amazing view of the fireworks as they burst over the Grand River. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs for outdoor seating.

During the event, the Museum will offer affordable meal deals and ice cream treats available for purchase.
