Coming July 4, 2017. The Big Easy knows how to throw a party! Head to New Orleans for their Go 4th On The River this Independence Day. The historic New Orleans Riverfront is the site of live music, food booths, and a Dueling Barges Fireworks Show. Two barges will be set up blocks away from each other launching fireworks into the night sky above the Mississippi River displaying massive bursts of red peonies, white dahlias, and blue chrysanthemums along with large red, white, and blue stars, and a unique five-pointed star all choreographed to patriotic music. Happy Fourth of July and enjoy this spectacular fireworks extravaganza!
