BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - As events make a comeback in the Capital City, businesses in Downtown Baton Rouge are preparing for an influx of tourists in the area in the coming weeks.
Take a look at some of the events in the works:
TURKEY TROT 5K
On the morning of Thursday, November 25th, the Turkey Trot 5K run returns to Downtown Baton Rouge. Celebrating its 35th year, this race is a local Thanksgiving tradition – one that serves the community by keeping them active and fit through racing and by partnering with the March of Dimes as a fund-raiser to help their organization financially and by spreading the word about the work they do. The 5k run/walk will begin at 8:00 a.m., while the 1 mile fun run/walk will begin at 7:30 a.m.
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
On Friday, December 3rd, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., Baton Rouge’s oldest holiday tradition is transforming the winter sky into a wonderland during the 2021 Festival of Lights. The Mayor will light North Boulevard with half a million sparkling lights. Experience the magic beneath the 35-foot Christmas tree in North Boulevard Town Square. Enjoy free ice skating and play in six tons of real snow at the Snow Village.
RED STICK REVELRY
On Friday, December 31st, Baton Rouge’s official New Year’s Eve Celebration will be taking place at the Davis Rhorer Plaza in Downtown Baton Rouge from 8:00 p.m. until midnight.
