Fire on the Bayou

An attempt was made during the 2012 New Year celebration to have a floating platform of fire float out on the bayou. That attempt quickly ended as the platform sunk to the bottom of the bayou.

The 2013 attempt was different. It appears that more thought and planning went into the effort. The fire burned for quite some time and there were timed fireworks that shot out at different intervals as the fire floated across the bayou.

The platform was tethered so it could be removed from the bayou. No one was injured but the safety of an open fire in an urban environment is certainly questionable.

Fireworks and the fire on the bayou are illegal in Orleans Parish.
