WHAT: The annual Happy 3rd of July event promises to be a spectacular show. Join us for the party dressed in your red, white, and blue best! Bring your chairs and blankets to enjoy patriotic music from The Marine Corps Band New Orleans on the Goldring/Woldenberg Great Lawn and fireworks from the top of the Peristyle. Arrive early for patriotic give-a-ways and a great spot on the lawn. The Marine Corps Band New Orleans will play patriotic music including the 1812 Overture, America the Beautiful, andother favorites.
Concessions such as burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, wine, and beer will be available for purchase, or you may bring your own picnic. This year City Park will also be selling snoballs through their new 'Snoball Concierge Service' with snoballs made in front of guests while they relax enjoying the music. Due to large crowds and noise from the fireworks, we encourage you to leave your pets at home.
