BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Baton Rouge Star Fall Festival brought music and art Sunday while highlighting talents from across the state.
The festival is an innovative way to help and inspire youth throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area.
“When you hear Big Star 225, you need to think community first,” said Taquana Givens, event coordinator. “Starting with our children because our children are why we do this to kind of bridge the gap between music and education to help them learn their art.”
Givens said the festival allows the organization to give back by creating toy drives for those in need.
“From now all the way to December 22nd to get toys. Bring them to Red Stick Social or Bella Noche and find a hub. Throw your toys in,” Givens said.
