The city of Deridder is hosting its Old Fashioned 4th of July celebration again this year on Wednesday, July 4, with a special invitation.

The event will offer, as always, entertainment for adults and children, a pie eating contest, and wrap up with a giant fireworks display. Organizers say they will provide free watermelon and hamburgers to all who want to attend, but they want to also expand the options.


If you or someone you know has a food truck, you should contact them through their Facebook page or at Deridder City Hall.
