Due  to risks  caused  by the high water level of the Mississippi River, East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome  has announced  the levee will not be available to the public for viewing of the fireworks. “While this year citizens cannot view the fireworks from the levee, we have worked with several partners to provide a number of public locations downtown where everyone can enjoy a great view of the outstanding fireworks show. In addition, the USS Kidd July 4th Spectacular is scheduled adjacent to the USS Kidd Veteran Museum, with all entertainment and activities planned. We encourage all residents and visitors to come and enjoy downtown Baton Rouge for a full day of festivities, capped off with a nighttime display of spectacular fireworks over the river.”

This map reflects the new adjustments to accommodate this announcement.
