BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) invites community members to visit Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General, a light display on BRG’s campus at the corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Picardy Avenue. Now through December 31, the lawn in front of the hospital is transformed into a twinkling, singing and musically synchronized lights display.

“Everything you enjoyed about last year’s display is back, plus we’ve added new elements to make it bigger and brighter,” said BRG President and CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “Whether you’re passing by or strolling through, Holiday Lights is our way of spreading a little holiday cheer to the community. And the free family night events give families a safe, convenient spot to celebrate the season.”

There are two ways to experience the Holiday Lights display.
