Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General Returns with New Event

BATON ROUGE, La. – Starting November 20, Baton Rouge General (BRG) invites the community to visit Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General presented by Entergy, a light display on BRG’s campus at the corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Picardy Avenue.

The large greenspace in front of the hospital is transformed into a twinkling, singing and musically synchronized lights display for the community to enjoy through December 31. This year, BRG is introducing a new family-friendly, ticketed event called “Snow & Glow” on December 2 and December 16, featuring strolling holiday characters, glow-in-the-dark performers, real snow, pictures with Santa, music, and more.

“Snow & Glow” is a ticketed event, and pre-sale tickets are required for admission. The cost is $5 per adult, with admission for the rest of the family free after that. Tickets are limited.

“Celebrating the Christmas season with our Holiday Lights display gives a much-needed boost to our entire community, especially our patients and our team members, during this challenging year,” said BRG CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “Driving by or strolling through, it’s our way to spread a little holiday cheer.”
