The Natchitoches Downtown Riverbank was filled with families as the city put on its traditional fireworks show to celebrate Independence Day. Several hundred eager fireworks lovers came out to celebrate America, enjoy the beautiful weather and listen to a concert by Southern Rockers Jaryd Lane and the Parish. Earlier that day, the phenomenal Cajun Fiddler, Amanda Shaw, played before a full house of delighted music fans at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northeast History Museum. Ms. Shaw’s show was the first of several concerts of the NSU Folklife Concert series.
The fireworks show, as always, did not disappoint with its usual strong beginning and a crescendo at the end worthy of an artillery barrage. The City of Natchitoches is one of the finest fireworks venues in the USA.
Happy 245th birthday America!
