This July 4th, journey downtown to the Baton Rouge riverfront.  The annual Star-Spangled Celebration will kick off at 12:00 p.m. at the Riverfront Stage between the USS KIDD Veterans Memorial and Red Stick Plaza.

 

Serving as the largest fundraiser of the year for the USS KIDD Veterans Memorial, the event usually draws between fifty to one hundred thousand people to the riverfront each Fourth of July.  It features live musical entertainment throughout the afternoon and evening, largely from bands and artists native to Louisiana.
