Baton Rouge, La (nbc33) — Hot Art – Cool Nights is having its tenth annual event this Friday in Baton Rouge.
It's free and open to the public.
Thirty different businesses will be set up as host sites along the route, and each one will feature the work of local artists.
Event organizers say it’s a great way to kick off Mothers' Day weekend.
"None of this will cost you a penny,” stated chairman Liz Walker. “The economic benefits to the city and Mid City are enormous."
Last year, more than 5,000 people attended the event.
