Hahnville, LA –The Independence Day Fireworks show on July 3, 2020, at the West Bank Bridge Park will no longer include a performance by Groovy 7 and vendors will be limited. All residents choosing to watch the fireworks from the West Bank Bridge Park are encouraged to wear a mask and practice proper social distancing.

Additionally, there will be an increased number of sanitation stations, port-o-lets and all vendors will wear gloves, masks and will practice social distancing.

The baseball fields will be open, providing over 20 acres of space for residents to spread out. Those choosing to watch the fireworks from other areas in the parish, such as the levee, are also encouraged to practice social distancing. The fireworks will also be live-streamed on Facebook for those who are unable to view the fireworks.

Faith Becnel will perform the National Anthem as we raise the flag to celebrate the nation’s birthday at 7 p.m. and the fireworks will begin around 9 p.m. and last for approximately 20 minutes.

I-310 southbound and northbound off-ramps to River Road (LA 18) will be closed 15 minutes prior to the fireworks and throughout the show, and River Road (LA 18) will be closed from Ashton Road to the School Board Office.

Pets, glass bottles and poppers are NOT allowed within the West Bank Bridge Park. No alcohol will be sold; however, as always, residents may bring their own alcohol, ice chests and folding chairs to the event and are encouraged to practice social distancing. In addition, the State Fire Marshal ordered that no one is allowed to enter or leave the park for up to 30 minutes before and after the fireworks show.

The West Bank Bridge Park, including the parking lot near the levee, will be closed the afternoon of July 2 in anticipation of this event, and the public will not be allowed to use the bike path, drive or walk past barricades present near the levee during fireworks setup.
