‘Tis the season to enjoy 10,000 lights, 3 tons of real snow, visits
with Santa and more!
Baton Rouge, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) invites families to
visit Holiday Lights at the General, a light show and family event on
BRG’s campus at the corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Picardy Avenue.
Beginning November 22, the lawn in front of the hospital will be transformed
into a twinkling, singing and musically synchronized lights display.
“Our team has always wanted to decorate the hospital for the holidays,”
said President and CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “These events give us the
opportunity to share some holiday cheer with the whole community, and
provide families the chance to celebrate in a safe and convenient location.”
The holiday display will feature a 40-foot mega tree, eight singing trees,
candy canes, snowmen and gingerbread people in addition to more than 10,000
lights. Every evening from November 22 through January 5, the lights will
be synchronized with music on the radio (station TBD).
Then, on Thursday nights between Thanksgiving and Christmas, BRG will
open the display to visitors for Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General,
free events that include:
- Music from local choirs and bands
