BATON ROUGE, La. — Friday, December 27, 2019 — Red Stick Revelry 2019 will bring an all-new laser light show featuring eight high-powered 3-D lasers, live music and fireworks over the Mississippi River when the Red Stick drops in the North Boulevard Town Square to ring in a new decade.
Baton Rouge’s official New Year’s Eve celebration, now in its seventh year, begins at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31, on the Crest Stage in City Hall Plaza, adjacent to City Hall, and concludes when the Red Stick drops at midnight in the North Boulevard Town Square with a fireworks and high-beam laser spectacular.
“Our annual Red Stick Revelry allows our City-Parish to gather and reflect on all of the great strides we made in 2019,” said Mayor Broome. “I look forward to being surrounded by our community as we ring in a new year of peace, prosperity and progress for Baton Rouge.”
Evening activities kick off at 8:00 p.m. with popular Baton Rouge jazz band The Florida Street Blowhards playing traditional jazz favorites, followed by Phat Hat taking the stage at 9:00 p.m.
Two all-new 20-minute laser light shows, choreographed to music and even larger than last year’s production, will be projected on a screen from the Crest stage and over the audience, at 9:30 p.m. and at 11:00 p.m. When the Red Stick drops at midnight, fireworks and a high-beam laser show will be visible throughout the event.
WAFB’s Carmen Poe will emcee 2019 Red Stick Revelry. In previous years, Red Stick Revelry has drawn an estimated 20,000 people celebrating downtown for the midnight drop of the Red Stick from above the North Boulevard Town Square.
Red Stick Revelry is made possible by the generosity of its presenting sponsors:
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Visit Baton Rouge, the Downtown Business Association, Cox Communications, Republic Services, Commercial Properties Realty Trust, CSRS, Inc., and the Raising Cane’s River Center.
