Tim’s Travel Tips: 16th Annual Salute to America

by Tim Joseph

This one got me excited. July 2 – 5, 2008 at The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra presents its Salute to America. Gates open at 6pm for the general public and there is pre-concert musical entertainment. If you’ve got kids there will be plenty of 19th century lawn games to play as well as a visit from members of the Greenfield Village historic baseball team.

The finale will be complete with fireworks as the orchestra plays Tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture with live cannon fire! It’s actually something I’ve always wanted to see. For more information please visit the Henry Ford Museum website.
