Downtown Day gets underway in Town Square

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Several restaurants are partnering with the Our Lady of the Lake Foundation and Children's Hospital for the annual Downtown Day.

It all kicked off in Town Square at 10:30 a.m. Restaurants in the area are out there selling food.

You can also buy tickets for the chance to win one of five brand new red cars in our Driving the Future campaign with OLOL.

"This is just something that we need," said Skip Phillips, an organizer of the event. "It will put us on the map. It will allow our children, if they need medical care, they will be treated right here at home. And, I think it's going to attract some world class doctors."

Downtown Day ends at 1:30 p.m.
