Events being shuffled for sudden LSU home game
BATON ROUGE - As goes LSU, so goes much of Baton Rouge.
Many different events happening around the campus and the city Saturday either had to cancel their plans or shuffle times around after the university announced they would host the Tigers' game against the University of South Carolina on short notice.
Alzheimer's Services of the Capital Area said their Walk/Run to Remember will now take place 9 a.m. Saturday at the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair Grounds. It was originally scheduled to happen at Tiger Stadium. Organizers said the route would also be reduced to one mile from 5K.
LSU's Saturday performance of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize winning play "Disgraced" at the Shaver Theater had to be canceled, since the theater is closed during home game days. The Science Saturday lecture for high school students at Nicholson Hall was also canceled, as was "Super Science Saturday" in the Pete Maravich Center. Organizers for Super Science Saturday, a STEM event for high school students from across the state, said they hope to reschedule for Saturday, Oct. 31.
Organizers of the Cap City Beer Fest shuffled their times from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the North Boulevard Town Square lawn. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 the day of the festival to sample more than 100 beers with live music and food from Galatoire's Bistro, Mestizo's Mexican Restaurant and Reed's Cakes and Catering. Proceeds will benefit the Companion Animal Alliance.
