Get ready for the fantastic 4th of July fireworks show, “Dueling Barges”, held on the Mississippi River while you listen to patriotic music. This dazzling spectacle begins at 9 PM, but there is much to do and see in the French Market while waiting for the extravaganza to begin. For instance, you could explore the vast display of fresh fruits and vegetables in the large open pavilion of the Farmer’s Market.  Next to the Farmer’s Market is the Flea Market with an endless number of goods for sale. Both the Farmer’s Market and Flea Market are extremely popular sites for both tourists and locals. For additional information on these 2 Markets and more, please see the following link: http://www.neworleansonline.com/directory/location.php?locationID=1336. Many people also take steamboat cruises such as the Creole Queen Paddlewheeler and the Steamboat Natchez in order to enjoy the fireworks up close. However, be sure to make reservations early because the tickets go fast. See the following links for ticket information: http://www.creolequeen.com/mississippi-river-cruises.html and www.steamboatnatchez.com.
