Christmas Tradition Returns: Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General are back


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Holiday Lights at Baton Rouge General with an all-new “Snow & Glow” event that will transform the grounds into a winter wonderland.

As many of you know, the holiday lights are “a light display on BRG’s campus at the corner of Bluebonnet Boulevard and Picardy Avenue.”

“Celebrating the Christmas season with our Holiday Lights display gives a much-needed boost to our entire community, especially our patients and our team members, during this challenging year,” said BRG CEO Edgardo Tenreiro. “Driving by or strolling through, it’s our way to spread a little holiday cheer.”
