Celebration on the Cane

Celebration on the Cane

Celebration on the Cane Set for July 4th

Annual Celebration to include Green Market, Food, Music, Amusements & Fireworks!

 

The City of Natchitoches invites you to celebrate Independence Day at Celebration on the Cane Saturday, July 4, 2015 on the downtown riverbank.  The annual Fourth of July Celebration will feature a patriotic Cane River Green Market, live musical entertainment, delicious food vendors, amusements for kids of all ages, and a spectacular fireworks show over Cane River Lake.  Admission to Celebration on the Cane is free and open to the public. 

 

The all-day event will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a patriotic Cane River Green Market.  The market will be open from 8:00 a.m. until noon on the riverbank and will feature a large assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables, value-added products, and handcrafted items.  The first 100 children to check in at the CRGM Kids Club will receive a free patriotic tote to assist with their shopping needs.  Activities at the Cane River Green Market include a free Zumba class instructed by Kimmy’s Zumba at 8:30 a.m. followed by the recitation of the Declaration of Independence at 10:00 a.m. by Shreveport native Kenneth Krefft.   

 

Activities will continue into the afternoon with inflatable water slides, bounce houses and face painting for the kids.  A variety of food vendors will sell Fourth of July favorites such as Italian ice, funnel cakes, meat pies, hot dogs and more.  Trinket vendors will also be on site with Independence Day memorabilia and souvenirs.

 

Musical entertainment kicks off at 3:30 p.m. with the always exciting and local favorite, The LaCour Trio.  With only three members, the LaCour Trio provides big band sound taking you on a musical journey covering Zydeco, Soul, Country, Rock and Roll, and Top 40 Dance hits.  The LaCour Trio has played in many venues both nationally and internationally.  The LaCour Trio will perform from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the riverbank stage.

 

At 6:00 p.m., the good times continue to roll with Bluesiana Red, a blues band from southwest Louisiana throwing down some real funky Blues, Rock and Roll, Soul, and R&B.  The Lake Charles area band consists of dynamic musicians with more than 75 years of combined experience seasoned with spicy Louisiana flavors and down home blues.  Bluesiana Red has a sound that is true to the roots of southern blues, rock and roll, boogie woogie, and cultural music.  Bluesiana Red will perform from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the riverbank stage.

 

No Fourth of July Celebration would be complete without fireworks.  At 9:00 p.m., the festivities will conclude with a spectacular fireworks show over Cane River Lake.

 

Admission to Celebration on the Cane is free and open to the public.

 

The downtown riverbank will be closed to motorists all day on July 4. Those attending Celebration on the Cane should make plans to park on Front Street or elsewhere within the Natchitoches Historic District.
