Extravagant fireworks show to light up sky
An average of 4,000 people gather to watch the fireworks show every year and gates open at the park at 6 p.m. on July 3. The event will feature a performance by Seabrook, a patriotic balloon-twisting clown and a military flyover.
The flyover is part of the opening ceremony, which begins at 6:15 p.m. The band, which plays swamp pop, country, Cajun, classic rock and current hits, is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
The fireworks extravaganza begins at 9 p.m.
Spectators, who can bring in coolers and folding chairs, can also choose to chow down on some of the local delicacies that will be sold at seven vendors. Sweets and baked goods, lemonade, nachos, Frito pies, jambalaya, corn dogs, french fries, pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream and snoballs will all be available this year.
While kids are waiting for the massive fireworks show, they can purchase poppers and glow necklaces or visit a patriotic balloon-twisting clown to get into the spirit of Independence Day.
Special 3D fireworks-viewing glasses will also be sold, and promise to make the fireworks pop out a little more to those wearing them.
The event will culminate with the fireworks show.
Residents need to note that I-310 southbound and northbound off ramps to LA 18 will be closed 15 minutes prior to the fireworks and throughout the show. LA 18 will also be closed from Ashton Plantation Boulevard to the School Board Office.
While residents can bring ice chests and folding chairs, pets or glass bottles are not allowed.
