The place to be on Independence Day is downtown Baton Rouge for celebrations, food, lots of music and fireworks. The annual Star-Spangled Celebration takes place on the Mississippi riverfront by the USS Kidd. Don’t miss the F-15 fighters and vintage aircraft mock attack!
Events kick off at 8am and the day of patriotic entertainment culminates with ‘Fireworks on the Mississippi’ at 9pm. For a full schedule of events, head on over to the Downtown Development District website.
