Donaldsonville celebrated Independence Day with a two-day festival featuring food, music, fireworks and a hot-air balloon glow.

The city’s annual Third of July Fireworks on the River celebration usually held in Crescent Park was retooled to a Friday and Saturday festival at the South Louisiana Fairgrounds because the park was under renovation.

The festival was produced by the Donaldsonville Downtown Development District and the Donaldsonville Area Chamber of Commerce.
