Good news, explosives fans: the close of New Orleans’ tricentennial year brings more fireworks displays than ever before to the Crescent City. The expanded shows will be visible from 70 neighborhoods citywide in a final blowout event to commemorate New Orleans’ 300th birthday.
“There is no better way to end the year than bringing fireworks to all New Orleans residents this New Year’s Eve,” stated Mayor LaToya Cantrell in a press release. “Additional sites will create a more inclusive celebration of a cherished local tradition.”
The expanded fireworks show is a joint effort between Cantrell, Councilmember Jay Banks, and Chevron. The 2018 NOLA Foundation, New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, and New Orleans and Company also provided funding.
“New Orleans has done a great job all year promoting its tricentennial, and we are pleased to support this celebration,” said Chevron manager Leah Brown in a press release.
