Ebb & Flow Festival to kick off festival season

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - We're kicking off festival season in the Capital City. It begins this weekend with the Ebb and Flow Festival.

The inaugural festival will be held along the Baton Rouge Riverfront on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2.

There will be creative experiences ranging from yarn bombing and bubble art to creative makerspaces and an interactive sculpture garden.

Temporary sculptural installations from Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdottir will enhance the walking path along the levee.

Activities and stations for interactive play will offer opportunities for visitors of all ages to enjoy and learn more about the history of the Mississippi River.

They include: "Kidd's Corner" at the USS Kidd, theatre performances at Louisiana's Old State Capitol, a storytelling village, a "human library," and an exhibition by the West Baton Rouge Museum highlighting the river's connection to Creole culture, Nunu's French exhibit and more.

The festival is free.
