Posted at 12:24 AM, Jul 07, 2022

The City of Broussard celebrated the 4th of July with its 17th annual Independence day celebration, at St. Julian Park.

The Festival included a kid's zone-- live music, DJ, and a fireworks display that some say was one for the books.

We spoke with one goer who says she and her family are thrilled to enjoy the festivities.

Dorita woods has lived in Saint Martinville for decades and has never attended the Broussard festivities until now.

“And I said this looks pretty exciting to come to. They have kids activities, and things going on like that and I said we’re going to go out there at 4 o’clock. And I said, we’re going to have some fun. And dress ourselves and go out,” Woods said.

“Me and my granddaughter saw how fun this was going to be, by watching the news and we had to make our way here,” Woods added.

Woods says the city has given them safer more enjoyable options to celebrate Independence day.

The festivities also included face painting for kids, a variety of entertainment booths, a cool down by the Broussard fire department, and a live performance by 3-37.
