Festival Plaza on the banks of the Red River  in Shreveport/Bossier LA., is the place to celebrate America's birthday this Wednesday, July 4th.

That's right, you won't have to travel far to see a fabulous show. Sixty miles south of Texarkana is the Independence Day Festival that will include lots of family fun events like a candied apple eating contest, patriotic karaoke, life jacket giveaway, a steak cook-off and live music from various local bands and country band, Montgomery Gentry on the main stage at 8:05PM.

Then get ready for one big fireworks show at 9:20PM. Independence Day Festival runs from noon until 11PM. This festival honors our men and women in uniform serving in the military past, present and future.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July and Happy Birthday America!
