Organizers prepare for Saginaw's firework display

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The biggest firework show in Michigan on the Fourth of July can be seen over Ojibway Island in Saginaw.

Organizers are still working to raise money to cover the cost of that show. They were at the entrance of Ojibway Island early Friday morning, setting up to collect donations.

Organizers were selling parking passes to get on Ojibway Island for a $20 donation.

People can also buy commemorative T-shirts for $10 or bracelets for $5. All the money goes toward the cost of the $85,000 show. Any extra money collected will help pay for next year's event. 

Organizers said they are close to receiving the funding for this year's show.

An estimated 80,000 to 100,000 people will show up for the pyrotechnical display Friday.
