Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Baton Rouge has been waiting for it for months, and tomorrow, the 2012 Bowling Congress rolls into the River Center.
Davis Rhorer of the Downtown Development District says he's excited about over 60,000 bowlers making their way to baton rouge for this huge bowling tournament.
Rhorer says the River Center has been totally remade with 48 bowling lanes and huge video screens. He says the tournament is running for six months, making it one of the longest bowling tournaments in history.
And he says it'll have a huge impact on the capital city's economy.
"I very much enjoy the aspect that they'll be here eating in our restaurants, staying in our hotels, and competing," said Rhorer.
