BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The month of love can be more than celebrating romantic relationships, you can celebrate your friends too.

In a USA Today article all about Galentine’s Day and its meaning, it says the holiday came from an episode of “Parks and Recreation” where the show’s lead went with a group of her girlfriends to a local restaurant to celebrate.

The day can be celebrated with girlfriends by going to the spa, a fancy dinner in town or even a winery. The fun part is that there are no real rules or expectations, just plan an activity all your friends would enjoy.

Here are some Galentine’s Day events happening in Baton Rouge throughout February.
