Recently, the arts community in BR held the first Baton Rouge Art Car Parade. I was able to go down there and take a few pics.

Very cool! Many cities are now doing this, and I believe the most well-known art car parade is the one in Houston. I'm glad to see Baton Rouge is also getting in on this. I'd love to go see an art car parade in person.

Here's a picture from the 2004 Houston Art Car Parade (IMG:http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

This event should be even bigger next year. This year they premiered Over The Hedge. The movies creator is a native of BR.





Also this weekend, we have Earth Day on Sunday afternoon downtown along North Blvd. It is one of the largest Earth Day events in the us.

The 4th of July on the river is always fun, but with a new river front, it should attract people downtown that never head to the river.

Wow, that's some awesome news, and Baton Rouge will get some great exposure out of that! (IMG:http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) I'd love to see it, but The Early Show isn't picked up by CBS affiliate WWLTV in New Orleans, instead we have a longer morning local news brodcast.

Awesome!! I'll set that to record!

They're giving away free sausage biscuits from McDonald's and free Coca-Cola, among others, to entice people into showing up for the program. Hell, that's a great idea!

So, did anyone watch The Early Show? I thought it was funny when he was trying to feed the alligator. (IMG:http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I've got it recorded and plan on watching it this evening.

Don't tell me everything. (IMG:http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Was it cool though?

I guess it was alright. They didn't really show the city as much as I had hoped, but we still got some exsposue which is the important thing.

Yeah, it's better when they really show things other than just reporting from one location like the Kidd. But the exposure is priceless. The intent of the show is to show the city in a positive light so that others will want to visit.

I did not see the show but I will when I get back home. I'm currently on a business trip in Philadephia, PA.

I watched it and I agree... it was "okay."

The funniest part WAS where he tried to feed the gator. (IMG:http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)
