I'll post more about what I was doing in Louisiana later, but for now...here are just a few highlights of watching the fireworks on the 4th. We went to the top of the Belmont parking garage. This is the 3rd or 4th time I've done it. I love it! It's not crowded, it's a good view, they provide drinks and cookies as well as speakers broadcasting the live music. If you want a fun non-stressful easy to get out of place to watch fireworks...I highly recommend going there.
