The Crescent City Downtown Divas will continue the Independence Day celebration on July 5 with a local home brewers demonstration and competition.

Part of the nonprofit organization's Live From Downtown: It's First Friday!, revelers can learn more about home brewing, sample homemade libations and vote for a favorite. A $10 entry fee provides for all tastings, a vote and a raffle ticket for a home brewers kit, according to a Downtown Divas news release.

There will also be live music, artisans, craft beer and wine, food vendors, family activities and locals showing off vintage cars. The event will be held from 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in Downtown Crescent City on July 5. For more information, visit
