BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The lights went on for a new era for a Baton Rouge football team.

A ribbon-cutting and lighting ceremony was held at BREC's Expressway Park Thursday evening.

The South Baton Rouge Jaguars and Coach Terry Boyd cut the ribbon for new lights for the team's field at the park under the I-10/110 split.

The new lights come after several new additions to the park including a basketball court and exercise equipment.

Parents used to use their car lights to light the field at night.
