No. 9: New Orleans (July 4)

New Orleans sure knows how to throw a party and -- aside from Mardi Gras -- there's no Big Easy party quite like Go 4th on the River. The festival's one-of-a-kind fireworks show features dueling barges shooting off fireworks along the New Orleans riverfront in front of 150,000 to 200,000 spectators.
