BATON ROUGE - A historic Coca Cola sign was officially turned back on at a special relighting ceremony in downtown Baton Rouge Friday night.

The lights on the sign were turned back on a few months ago after going dark for awhile because of a dispute over who owned it. The relighting was preceded by a second line celebration.

The sign has been at the corner of 3rd Street and Florida Boulevard since the 1950s and is one of the few of its kind left in the entire country.

After it went dark, the Baton Rouge Area Foundation worked out a deal between several different groups to get it turned back on ahead of Friday's relighting ceremony.
