Shreveport Fireworks: 2023 4th Of July Celebrations Guide
Want to see fireworks over the 4th of July holiday in the Shreveport-Bossier City, LA, and surrounding areas? We did all of the work to make sure you have a complete list of places to watch fireworks light up the night sky in honor of America!
I don't know what it is about fireworks, they must be magical because they make me feel like a kid again! Maybe it's because watching fireworks evokes a sense of childlike wonder and excitement, transporting us back to hot carefree summer nights like the ones we're getting ready to experience again over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Nostalgia aside, fireworks usually accompany some type of celebration, so I always associate them with something 'good.' I guess that's why seeing fireworks as an adult lets us reconnect with our inner child;)
Please note, as we confirm more fireworks shows, we'll update this guide, so you'll want to bookmark this page.
