Go Fourth On The River

This unique salute to America’s Independence will feature a fireworks display from two barges over the mighty Mississippi.
The barges will be positioned on the river between Gov. Nichols St. Wharf and Canal St. Dock. You will be able to see them from both banks of the river. The fireworks show is choreographed to a medley of patriotic songs. This patriotic fireworks display ranks in the top 5 “must see” according to the american pyrotechnics association.
