To commemorate our 27th anniversary, the Port of New Orleans will bring out the General Roy S. Kelley fireboat and make a return appearance along the river, with its famed water show with plumes of red, white, and blue fountains beginning at 6:00 p.m. and leading up to the 9:00 p.m. fireworks show.

The Fireboat General Roy S. Kelley is a working emergency response vessel operated by the Port of New Orleans. Built in 1994 and routinely maintained, the fireboat can be seen patrolling the Mississippi River within the Port's three-parish jurisdiction (Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard). The General Kelley is 95 ft. long and 16 ft. wide with a 7 ft. draft. It seats 24 and typically has a crew of three.
