LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
The City of Lake Charles is set to celebrate the Fourth of July and like they do every year they'll end it with a bang. This is the 20th year for the annual Red, White, Blue, & You celebration.
The fireworks display is always the big finale, but last year some people missed out. The fireworks were scheduled to go off at 9:15, but the Community Band wrapped up their concert early leading to the fireworks exploding over the Lakefront slightly earlier than scheduled.
The City took a little heat from the decision. This year Mayor Randy Roach said they are once again shooting for 9:15 but reminds people to get out their early.
"All times are approximate. We are going to try to have the fireworks around 9:15. We are going to try to work within that. This is like live TV - and things happen. So just be prepared. I would encourage everyone interested in coming to the fireworks display to get there a little bit early just to make sure they can get settled in so they don't have to worry about the traffic, but it will be around 9:15 in that time frame," said Mayor Roach.
One slight change to note: The program and concert by the Lake Charles Community Band will be held on the steps in front of the Lake Charles Civic Center due to construction near the amphitheater. A patriotic parade is scheduled for 6 p.m. followed by the concert at 7:15 p.m.
