Every July 4th, Dearborn particularly gives the impression, among other cities, that the Fireworks are overdone by some of its residents.

Most Dearborn schools have been out for about a week and some college spring classes have come to a close. The city celebrated the end of the Holy month of Ramadan and celebrated Eid Al-Fitr on Saturday for some and Sunday for others.
