2014 Detroit Fireworks | Detroit News

I assisted the Detroit News on their staff’s coverage of the 2014 Detroit Fireworks. Covering the curfew violations in the early evening and the fireworks watchers in Hart Plaza, the  main location to view the fireworks. This year’s fireworks went off without any police incidents, which are common in year’s past.
