Festivities will begin at 2 p.m. with live music and a parade on Commerce Street in downtown Shreveport. Live entertainment at Riverview Park will continue at 3 p.m. including gospel choirs, children’s groups, regional bands and more. At 6:45 p.m., Shreveport Mayor Ollie Tyler and Bossier City Mayor Lo Walker will officially “switch on” giant, lighted Christmas trees in downtown Shreveport and at Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets in Bossier City. The trees will be lighted in unison immediately prior to a 20-minute fireworks show set to music and presented by Pyromania Fireworks. The evening will conclude at 7:30 p.m. In the event of a rainout, the event will be held on Sunday, Nov. 27.

Both sides of the Red River will feature great firework viewing areas at Riverview Park in Shreveport and along the Riverfront Promenade at Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets in Bossier City. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to get good parking and a great spot on the riverfront for fireworks viewing. Both viewing areas will offer live entertainment, kids’ activities, food vendors and arts and crafts booths. All restaurants and shops in the area of the festival will be open before and after the fireworks show. The official event hashtag for social sharing is #RocketsOverTheRed.
