“Go Fourth” was voted one of Southeast Tourism Society's "Top 20 Events in the Southeast USA" and ranked 5th "must see" fireworks display in the U.S. by American Pyrotechnic Association. New Orleans celebrates our nation's Independence with a full day's worth of events and the entire riverfront gets into the act, with many area businesses hosting special Independence-themed shows. The Annual GO FOURTH ON THE RIVER will feature entertainment and the Dueling barges Fireworks extravaganza! Woldenberg Park is the setting for many of the events associated with July 4th in New Orleans...concerts by local, regional and national acts, festival entertainment and, of course, great food!
Enjoy the music, the food, and the kind of fun you'll only find in New Orleans while the night sky fills with explosions of color. The display can be seen from anywhere along the crescent of the river, especially from the Woldenberg Park area. The fireworks begin at 9pm, so head towards the river early.
Include New Orleans in your Independence Day plans... after all, this just may be the most "Independent" and free city in America!
