DETROIT (AP) - This year’s annual fireworks display over the Detroit River is billed as a salute to progress made toward Detroit’s revival and optimism for the future.

The event’s producers The Parade Co. announced Thursday that The Ford Fireworks on June 27 will be themed “Go Forward Detroit.”

The show by Zambelli Fireworks will include more than 10,000 pyrotechnic effects visible for miles along the river between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. It’s the 58th year for the event. Dearborn-based Ford Motor Co. has been the title sponsor since 2013.

This year, Ford will offer free admission to Belle Isle for the first 1,000 vehicles. The island park is among the popular spots for watching the fireworks.
