The Mid City Merchants will host its White Light Night Art Hop, rain or shine, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21.

This is the 17th year for the event, which draws people to the heart of Baton Rouge for an evening of viewing local art trends, meeting artists and jump-starting the holiday season.

The public is invited to this free event where art by local artists can be purchased at participating midcity businesses. There also will be entertainment, food and wine, and live music at most venues.

Original art is sales tax-free in the Mid City Art and Design Cultural District.
