BATON ROUGE, LA — As fall sets in and the winter season approaches, Baton Rouge livens with increasing excitement as the holidays roll in. This year, the Mid City Merchants will again host its premier art event, as expectations for the 15th annual 2012 White Light Night Art Hop continue to rise.
This year’s event is targeted to once again bring thousands to the heart of Baton Rouge for an evening of viewing local art trends, meeting the artists, and jumpstarting the holiday season with the fire that only local culture can bring.
The public is invited to this free event where they can view and purchase art by local artists at participating mid city businesses and experience shopping, entertainment, food, and wine. New in recent years is the additional of live music at most venues.
Hop on a shuttle, carpool with friends, or stroll down Government Street from one great art opening to another while enjoying the lights and the excitement. And remember- original art is sales tax free in the Mid City Art and Design Cultural District!
White lights have sparkled in Mid City since 1998 and on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012.
