RED, WHITE, BLUE & YOU: Fireworks in Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Lake Charles’ Fourth of July celebration “Red, White, Blue & You” was streamed online this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead of a parade and outdoor festival, a patriotic concert and fireworks was streamed live on KPLC’s website and Facebook page on July 4.

“Red White Blue & You,” will not have a live audience in 2020. Instead, a patriotic concert and fireworks will be streamed live on KPLCTV.com and KPLC 7 News Facebook Page on Saturday, July 4.
