Downtown Natchitoches’ Riverbank was the place to be to celebrate our nation’s independence Saturday, July 2. The celebration featured a concert and fireworks show giving hours of family fun at no cost.
The evening began with a local favorite, The Kelli Roberts Band. The band lived up to its reputation for high energy fun as they played a variety of songs in several genres for two solid hours before the fireworks show. Several food trucks were on hand serving local cuisine to the crowd packing the riverbank.
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.
