The New Orleans Saints “Championship Tour” made its way to downtown Baton Rouge this morning. Excited fans lined up to catch a glimpse at the Lombardi Trophy – one of the main features of the tour. There are also many great exhibits and interactive elements that are all free of charge.
“Our fans are the inspiration and foundation of our success, it is important to me and our organization to share these symbols of our Championship with as many of our fans throughout the Gulf South as possible,” said Saints Owner Tom Benson.
The tour began last week with the first stop in Lake Charles. The Region-wide tour will continue on to Jackson, MS (July 26), Pensacola, FL (July 27), Mobile, AL (July 28), and Biloxi/Gulfport, MS (July 29).
The Championship Tour began at 10 a.m. and will continue through 6 p.m. at the River Center. We will have a complete look at the event tonight on NBC33 News at 5 p.m.
