Among a plethora of smaller and bigger events running throughout the capital of Louisiana, you can find live music performances, excellent dining opportunities, and of course, fireworks. The most vibrant area to celebrate the 4th is Downtown Baton Rouge, and the absolute favorite remains the Fourth of July Firework Spectacular on the Mississippi River. The show can be seen from multiple points across the city.

The patriotic fireworks are typically a part of the Fourth Fest held at the Port Allen's Riverfront on the Mississippi River Levee. Family-friendly festivities start at 4 pm and offer live entertainment, a food court, and much fun for kids, including face painting, space walks, magicians, and clowns. The celebration ends at 10:30 pm with a fireworks display. After all, if you can't make it to the venue, you can enjoy a live telecast on WBRZ News 2's Facebook,, or 24 Hour News Channel WBRZ+.
