Crowds flowed into downtown Shreveport all day to get ready for the big fireworks show. They staked out the best viewing places and grabbed some 4th of July food (some brought there own) and enjoy a beverage or two. The first few musical acts performed as scheduled. But that's when things changed.

The first sign of things to come was the wind. Gusts reported as high as 60MPH caused problems on the stage and for some vendors. Then the rain and lightning moved in to dampen the spirits of all the people. The crowd scattered, some heading to their cars to wait out the storm. Others found shelter at the Barnwell. The stage crew decided it would be too dangerous for Collin Raye or Jared Neiman to perform...so they packed it all up and left. But the fireworks went off just after 10pm, about an hour late.
