River Raisin National Battlefield, a historical area preserving the history of the War of 1812, will be the site of explosions once again: this time, fireworks. The River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation is throwing an all-day party that begins with a Jeep parade, with old and new Jeeps, culminating in the raffling off of a brand new Jeep Wrangler. Following that will be a day of kayaking, barbecues, lacrosse, a performance by illusionist/storyteller Caleb Johnson and the family-friendly music of all-mummy group Here Come the Mummies. The evening will conclude with fireworks. Parade begins at 11am through downtown Monroe, while the festivities kick off at noon.
