June 19, 2008 | Upcoming Events

Looking for a great place to spend the July 4th holiday…well look no further and plan to come to the New Orleans Riverfront for the annual "Go 4th on the River" celebration.

After a full day of entertainment and events at all the attractions along the riverfront, the excitement is focused on the Dueling Barges Fireworks Extravaganza at 9 pm…ranked 5th "must see" fireworks display in the United States by the American Pyrotechnic Association.

This unique salute to America's independence will feature a " Symphony in the Sky" from barges over the Mighty Mississippi. Choreographed to stirring patriotic classics and simulcast on WWL 870 AM and Magic 101.9 FM, Classic Fireworks by Pyrotecnico paints beautiful strokes of radiant light with the sky as a canvas and color as the palette.

Participating riverfront attractions include:

Harrah's Casino
French Market
Steamboat NATCHEZ
Paddlewheeler CREOLE QUEEN
JAX Brewery
Pat O's on the River
Hard Rock Cafe
The Shops at Canal Place
The Westin Hotel
Drago's Seafood Restaurant at the Hilton
