Happy Birthday, Baton Rouge!! 200 years ago today, on January 17, 1817, the Legislature incorporated the city of Baton Rouge. Now, 200 years later we’re celebrating this milestone with a year-long celebration including bicentennial themed events, festivities, exhibits, products, and more! Throughout 2017, as Baton Rouge celebrates its 200th year of incorporation, Baton Rouge Moms will be celebrating too. Our biggest event of the year, “Baton Rouge Moms’ Night Out – Bicentennial Birthday Bash”, will celebrate Baton Rouge’s bicentennial birthday and the women living, loving and mothering in Baton Rouge.
Baton Rouge Moms’ Night Out – May 11th, 2017 @ 7pm
