Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The Super Bowl party is here early in Baton Rouge.
Whether you're trying to avoid the crowds in New Orleans or just looking for a great deal on a hotel visit, Baton Rouge representatives says the Capitol City has something for you.
Lots of folks will be in town this weekend to party before the big game. The festivities start this Friday with live music in town square; also, parades will take place on Friday and Saturday.
"We want Baton Rouge citizens to come down and welcome out-of-town visitors, just like they do during the Countryfest and during the bowling tournament,” stated Paul Arrigo with Visit Baton Rouge. “We are well known for being hospitable people, and we want to continue that reputation."
