3.  Port Allen - a great place to watch fireworks over the Mississippi River (unless you are like me and try to time driving over the Mississippi Bridge just in time to catch fireworks - very cool from that high up!).  Activities start a 4 p.m. at the Old Ferry Land Park at Court Street and the Mississippi River levee.  Music starts at 7 and runs to 10:30.  There's face painting, magicians, clowns and a spacwak - plus, vendors selling food.
