    Top Spots for 4th of July Festivities Around New Orleans

    July in New Orleans is definitely a hot one, but it’s the place to be for the 4th of July.  Between all the festivals, the fireworks over the Mississippi River, and the all-around good time you have while visiting the “Big Easy” there’s so much to see and do.  If you are heading to NOLA for the 4th, here is a list of the top spots for 4th of July activities.

    Essence Fest- June 29th-July2nd

    Kick off the weekend with some good music. The Essence Fest is the country’s largest celebration of African American music and culture and it’s hosted at the Superdome in New Orleans every year.  Big name artists such as Mary J Blige, Chaka Khan, and Diana Ross will be on stage performing for the crowd all three nights.  Tickets are still available here http://www.essence.com/festival-2017.

    3rd of July Fireworks- July 3rd

    Want to catch an early Fireworks show? Visit the Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn in New Orleans City Park.  Come early and enjoy music by the Marine Corp Band, concessions including hot dogs, corn dogs, beer and lemonade, and of course a spectacular fireworks show after dark. Bring your blanket or lawn chair and get cozy.

    Go 4th on the River

    Of course the big draw and place to be on the 4th of July in New Orleans is the Riverfront.  Displayed high over the Mighty Mississippi River, enjoy the 5th best fireworks show in the country.  Watch in awe as two barges duel it out to provide the best and biggest fireworks around.  Festivities start at 6pm with the fireworks starting at 9pm.  There will be plenty of food and drink vendors along the riverfront as well so get their early and enjoy the beautiful waterfront of New Orleans.
