The Third of July

Kicking off the Fourth of July festivities a day early is City Park's "Happy Third of July" shindig with music starting at 5:30 p.m. on the Great Lawn and a 9 p.m. fireworks show blasting off at the Peristyle. Other pre-Independence Day celebrations include tonight's "Uncle Sam Jam" at Lafreniere Park (patriotic crooner Lee Greenwood is playing a free show, p.s.) and Kenner/Treasure Chest Casino fireworks show over Lake Pontchartrain . Head this way for our map of a dozen spots in the New Orleans metro area to watch explosions in the sky. [Curbed NOLA]
