ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- The City of Alexandria celebrated Independence Day Friday night at the annual "Rock the Red" event held at the downtown amphitheater.

Attendees were treated to a live performance by the J. Diamond Washington and Company band out of New Orleans. Food and drinks were also provided by local businesses.

"It's so nice to have a community that puts on something like this that everyone can enjoy," said Ray Gill, who was there supporting Jack's Drinks.

Many veterans were also present at the event. "I like the band, the music, the food, and just the people," said Oscar Dacus, a Vietnam veteran.

The grand finale was a magnificent firework display over the Red River. Fireworks were funded and made possible by the City of Alexandria.
