This weekend is also the last opportunity to set off those hoarded fireworks. As a reminder, if lighting fireworks is in your game plan, Michigan law allows fireworks from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. from now through July 4. Fireworks cannot be used on public property, including streets and sidewalks, school property, or church property. It is also illegal to light off fireworks on someone else's property without permission. It is also illegal to use fireworks while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

All in all, the weather forecast looks great and folks are once again free to roam the Homeland, without restrictions.
