Washtenaw County is totally lame when it comes to fireworks shows. Manchester is the only one and thats nearly Lenawee County anyhow. Lenawee has a number of shows and Oakland County where I came from has a ton of shows in a dozen communities. Bah....Whats u with that?

The display is funded by donations..they collected at the gate. Also Dexter Hudson Mills has a large display every year.

To be fair, my understanding is this was a privately sponsored display. Still yes you would think AA municipality, authority or venture could have done the same.
