A high aerial fireworks display shot off from Lake Charlevoix just off shore from Depot Beach on the north side of Charlevoix.

Friday evening fireworks can be seen from Depot Beach, East Park, and Ferry Beach.  The Depot Beach location offers choreographed fireworks music.  East Park will have live music right up until close to the time of the fireworks.  Ferry Beach will have live music provided by the Up North Jazz Big Band, a swing-era band providing live entertainment and a cleared pavilion perfect for dancing.

Opening act - redline airshow returns and brings Scream 'n Rebels with it!

Upward entertainment has long been a highlight of Venetian. Opening the “sky-lights” this year will again be a patriotic flag jump, followed by Redline Airshows and Scream ‘N Rebels War Birds! Two RV8 planes will “scream down” the channel before twisting and turning in astonishing aerobatics followed by Scream ‘N Rebels War Birds that will perform four ceremonial fly-overs honoring the men and women that have fought and fallen for our country. This year’s Missing Man formation will honor Dave Juilleret who grew up and lived in Charlevoix, served in the Navy, and recently passed. Airshow sponsored by Skydive Charlevoix.

NEW THIS YEAR – Meet the pilots and see the airplanes on Friday, July 26, from 1:30-3 p.m. at Skydive Charlevoix, located at the Charlevoix airport.
