Fireworks, Independence Day

Gallery: Go 4th on the River ends with a BANG!

The annual Go 4th on the River ended with a river barge shooting fireworks on the Mississippi River in New Orleans as seen from the Algiers Point side of the river looking at St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter on the other side of the river on July 4, 2019.

Because of the high river height at 16 feet, which is near the minor flood stage height of 17 feet, there was only one barge this year and the barge appeared to readjust itself in the stronger current from higher than normal river.

The Bonnet Carre Spillway is still open upriver to elevate the chance of flooding in New Orleans.
