The Frankenmuth Jaycees are proud to host their annual Independence Day races! On July 3, enjoy a spaghetti dinner & music. Have a great night, ending with fireworks & get ready for the races the following morning.

Frankenmuth Fireworks - 10:05 pm

Frankenmuth displays some of the best fireworks in the whole region. With beautiful scenery all over Frankenmuth you are sure to have a breathtaking view from nearly anywhere in town as you see the reflection of the fireworks glaring off of the Cass River. As it cools down at night, make sure you stop in the Frankenmuth Fudge Kitchen to get a nice warm sample of fudge fresh off of the marble table. If you ask nicely the fudge maker might even cut you a fresh piece to enjoy while you watch fireworks.
