Celebrating with Friends at the Livonia Spree

In 1973, Livonia’s birthday party was named Spree 23 by Industrial Development coordinator Daniel Gilmartin as a befitting name for the town’s 23rd birthday.  Kiddie rides were added, civic groups were involved as food vendors, entertainment was added to the existing groups and massive feeding was gone.  Spree 23 was an entertainment and monetary success, and having the core of energetic workers, a tribute to the city coming together.

And these days, the party continues…

40 years later the Livonia Anniversary Committee Continues to bring our community together every year to celebrate their city. Held at Ford Field at the corner of Farmington Road and Lyndon the last full week in June. This year it starts tomorrow through Sunday, June 30.

Kids enjoying their night out at the Livonia Spree

On the Livonia Spree website, there is something at the event for everyone in the family:  delicious food; great music ranging from Country to jazz; a fantastic family carnival; and of course, the Grand Finale Fireworks Extravaganza on Sunday night.

In honor of  Bright House Networks’ 10 year anniversary, we partnered with the Livonia Spree on Facebook to give out some free ride vouchers to our customers. So far, several of you have shared how we have been a friend for your chance to win. Here’s what a few of you have to say so far:

Heidi – “I love how brighthouse is always at kids safety day and the spree. Always great service and employees have a smile.”
Brenden M. – “Bright House has been my friend as long as I’ve been alive (before that for my family since my dad worked there). We had bright house for as long as we could. But it is no longer available in my area:(. We were so upset to find out we had to go to a different companies. But I still love them and all they do at/for the spree!”
Mary B. – “I’ve had cable in my home now for thirty two yrs! I was the second person too get it on my street! I still remember the movie I watched motel Hell lol I’ve been going to the spree forever to and are glad they are sponsors  thank u Bright house for the great service I’ve received.”
Michelle N. – “We’ve been a Brighthouse customer since we got married in 1992. It followed us to our new home (15 yrs), then to our current house (7 yrs) and recently we switched our business to Bright House because of the great history we’ve had with you. Thank you!”
We are humbled by your comments and wish the city of Livonia, our customers and friends, a happy anniversary and a great time at the Spree!

Lots of fun every year for family and friends at the Livonia Spree!

This year, we are the premiere sponsor and the host of the Bright House Networks tent featuring live entertainment including: battle of the Bands, a pie eating contest, demonstrations and other musical guests.
