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.
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.
