BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge hotel vacancies are quickly disappearing for the May 23-25 weekend when country music superstars will entertain thousands at the Bayou Country Superfest.

Tourism officials and event planners are hoping for record-setting attendance for the now three-day event, which drew about 70,000 last year when it was held over two days.

At least 19 Baton Rouge hotels are sold out, Friday through Sunday, according to event website bayoucountrysuperfest.com/stay. Five other hotels reported vacancies only for Sunday. One reported vacancies only for Friday. Another reported having only double rooms available.

Festival Production Inc.-New Orleans' website notes that two-day ticket packages are no longer available but tickets for individual days remain.
