Bring the kids early to enjoy hands-on activities with the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge and get an early start on your New Year's resolutions with the cast of "Kick It Out", Of Moving Colors Dance Productions and our own "Red Stick Revelry" song. Sing Auld Lang Syne with Mayor "Kip" Holden as he raises the Red Stick rises to 60 feet above Town Square where it will sit until the countdown begins.

Entertainment starts the NYE off right with David St. Romain from 6:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m. and then Phat Hat from 9 p.m. – Midnight will bring in the new year, 2015! The Red Stick drops to ring in 2015 with a fireworks show over the Mississippi River

When you purchase your official Red Stick Revelry t-shirt, you are supporting Baton Rouge's newest celebration. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt will help make next year's Red Stick Revelry posible. The official Revelry t-shirt is short-sleeved and comes in midnight blue. The four-color design features the new iconic Red Stick LED light sculpture at Town Square, emblazoned with the "Red Stick Revelry" logo.
