One of their biggest fundraisers of the year takes place on June 27 – the Ford Fireworks Rooftop Party presented by Ford Motor Company atop the Center Parking Garage next to the Renaissance Center. This sold-out annual party is attended by hundreds of businesses and civic leaders from across the Detroit metro area, making it a true Detroit tradition.

The Parade Company selects the musical arrangement of Ford Fireworks and works exclusively with Zambelli Fireworks and international choreographer Patrick Brault to stage over 10,000 pyrotechnic effects. The Ford Fireworks is the largest display in the country for Zambelli Fireworks. For more information, please visit theparade.org.
