Fireworks over the Mississippi
At Crowne Plaza Executive Center we’re excited to be getting ready for Independence Day celebrations in Baton Rouge, where fireworks by the truckload will illuminate the night sky over the Mississippi River. We recommend our guests pack their favorite food and drink and take a short ten-minute drive up to the historic USS Kidd Battleship, a favorite spot for families to lay down blankets and enjoy the fireworks display. Those in the mood for daytime festivities should consider heading up a little earlier, as the USS Kid’s Freedom Festival kicks off at 11 A.M. the morning of the Fourth. You might also check out the annual Fourth of July celebration at the Shaw Center for the Arts, hosted by the Louisiana Museum of Art. Smoked barbecue, delicious drinks, and fine art make for an intoxicating Independence Day mix. Late night revelers will have no problem finding additional fun after hours, as the bars stay open late here in Louisiana.
