Go 4th On The River

July 4, 2017
  • Location: Woldenberg Park, 1 Canal Street
  • Times: 9:00 pm
  • Visit Website

The Go 4th on the River Dueling Barges Fireworks Extravaganza is the annual Independence Day Celebration along the New Orleans Riverfront with all-day activities for the whole family. New Orleans Summers are hot – and there is no hotter place to be for the Fourth of July than in the Crescent City.

This year's display, which is choreographed to patriotic music, will feature Barrage Batteries of hundreds of rapid-fire shells fired in a sweeping motion several times at heights of 200 feet above the Mississippi River. During the main body of the display and during the thunderous grand finale, massive bursts of red peonies, white dahlias, and blue chrysanthemums will fill the sky. At one point during Neil Diamond's America, large red, white, and blue stars will take center stage as they create a unique five-pointed star in the dark sky. All the other colors of the rainbow will be displayed as well, along with silver and gold.

This year the Riverfront Marketing Group through J & M Displays will provide an iPhone and Android app that will allow anyone who downloads the app to hear the show music in real time in sync to the fireworks. Go to Go4thontheRiver.com and scan the QR code.


At 5:00 p.m. in Crescent Park the French Market District will feature free live performances by Category 6, Revival, DJs Eagle and Majik Mike and the Pan Vibrations leading up to the 9:00 p.m. Dueling Barges Fireworks Show. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own chairs to enjoy the show. (Coolers, glass, and tents are not allowed.) Visit www.FrenchMarket.org for schedule details.


The French Market District will also present the second annual Fireworks Photography Workshop with Zack Smith Photography in Crescent Park. Participants are guaranteed a VIP riverfront viewing area to photograph the 9:00 p.m. fireworks show and learn about unique techniques to get the best photos ever! Register at www.ZackSmith.com.


The Port of New Orleans will bring out the General Roy S. Kelley fireboat again this year with its famed water show with plumes of red, white, and blue fountains beginning at 6:00 p.m. and leading up to the 9:00 p.m. fireworks show. Built in 1994, the aging General Kelley was used by the Port of New Orleans to fight fires, give tours, and conduct search-and-rescue missions on the Mississippi River. The General Kelley is 95 ft. long and 16 ft. wide with a 7 ft. draft. It seats 24 and typically has a crew of three.
