New Orleans, LA – The Riverfront Marketing Group invites you to celebrate the 4th of July down by the riverside at the 20th annual Go 4th on the River Dueling Barges Fireworks Extravaganza. This year’s event is presented by Chevron, Entergy, Zito Companies, and Versabar, with support from ExperienceNewOrleans.com, Magic 101.9 and WWL AM, FM and .com, and WWL TV Channel 4.

Ranked by the American Pyrotechnics Association as one of the “TOP FIVE MUST-SEE FIREWORKS DISPLAYS IN THE U.S.,” Go 4th on the River offers a day the whole family can enjoy riverboat rides, shopping, dining, and exploring great attractions along the New Orleans Riverfront.
Bring your radios to the river as Magic 101.9 and WWL AM 870 and FM 105.3 simulcast the dynamic fireworks show choreographed to stirring patriotic music and heard in 38 states in the U.S.
