Sculpture unveiling rescheduled due to rain
BATON ROUGE - Today's ceremony to christen a new Baton Rouge sculpture called "The Crest" has been cancelled, according to the Downtown Development District.
They said bad weather forced them to reschedule it for a later date.
The curved sculpture stretches over a stage at the Galvez Plaza and will hold rigging for concerts and other events downtown.
The more than $900,000 stainless steel structure was approved in 2011 and originally scheduled to be completed in April, but weather and other construction delays held it off until recently.
