WBRZ’s Fireworks on the Mississippi, sponsored by the Baton Rouge Clinic, is the Gulf Coast’s largest fireworks show.
WBRZ and the Manship family have financially supported the fireworks show from the beginning. It has been an annual event for families and spectators for decades.
The Manship family has owned WBRZ since the station first started broadcasting in the 1950s. It remains the city’s only locally-owned news station and is one of only two family-owned network broadcast stations in Louisiana.
The show can be seen from either side of the Mississippi River, in downtown Baton Rouge or Port Allen.
