July 4 -French Quarter
You can watch fireworks in just about any city in the United States when July 4th rolls around, but you won’t find any firework display quite like the one in New Orleans.
In this city, we don’t have just one fireworks show, we have two, at the same time, in the form of dueling barges on the Mississippi River. That’s right, on the Fourth of July, two barges shoot off a spectacular array of sparkling lights and cosmic sounds along the New Orleans river front. Picture the dueling pianos that you can find along Bourbon Street, but with fireworks instead. It’s the kind of experience that you don’t want to miss, and it’s guaranteed to wow the whole family.
The fireworks show starts at 9 p.m. Every year, Magic 101.9 or WWL AM 870 or FM 105.3 syncs patriotic music to the fireworks, so be sure to bring a radio and tune in.
