You can celebrate Our Fair City all of this New Year’s Eve with Red Stick Rising and Red Stick Revelry!
Red Stick Rising, a great event for kids and parents, will happen during the day from 11 AM-1 PM in the North Boulevard Town Square. The Arts Council will run hands-on print-making, face-painting, and (non-permanent) tattooing activities. You and your kids can listen to champion fiddler James Linden Hogg while you watch the dedication of the Bicentennial Plaque, take in Mayor Sharon Weston Broome’s Bicentennial Proclamation, and enjoy a dance performance by Of Living Color. We’ll sing Auld Lang Syne count up to the raising of the Red Stick, which will stay raised until midnight.
Come back at 9:00 PM for Red Stick Revelry, a New Years Eve party like no other (because it happens right here in Baton Rouge, of course). Phat Hat will play in Galvez Plaza until the new year. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss, so come on out and meet 2018 in our very own 200-year old Baton Rouge!
Happy (almost) New Year!
