The weekend begins Friday night with "A Salute to America" fireworks display over the Mississippi River at Woldenberg Park, weather permitting. "Bayou Saturday Night," a free concert on Saturday, was moved from Champions Square - an outdoor venue next to the Superdome - to inside the Smoothie King Arena due to the weather forecast.
