Tiki Night Fireworks
At the May 13, 2020 meeting, the Village Council voted to cancel our Annual Tiki Night Fireworks show for the Village after carefully weighing the risks associated with the event and our current state of emergency. They took into consideration the recommendations of everybody in the Village, and they came together to make this unified decision. They concluded that the highest priority and obligations to protect the health and safety of volunteers, employees, the residents of Wolverine Lake and the residents of neighboring communities that attend the annual Tiki Night Fireworks. They did not take this decision lightly and while we know that this will disappoint many of you and many visitors we feel this decision was the best for the Village. Due to COVID-19 and all of the safety and personnel things to consider it was not appropriate to hold this event because it is impossible to predict the status of the disease between now and the month of July and it would be next to impossible to enforce safe distancing.
However, we are evaluating the process moving forward to still hold a Tiki Candle Night to light up the lake to continue that tradition and will post that information as things continue to evolve. It is also our hope that our community will be able to celebrate responsibly at their own homes during the 4th of July weekend. In the meantime, the Village will continue to work diligently to provide a fun-filled and safe event next year in 2021.
As this is a rapidly-evolving situation, with critical updates happening daily or even hourly, we encourage our residents to continue to stay tuned to the Village’s social media pages and website for the most pertinent and accurate local coverage of this pandemic. Please if you have any questions contact us at 248.624.1710.
Together, we can continue to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Tiki Night Fireworks are always held on July 3rd unless otherwise noted.
