WBR Museum Family Day

The West Baton Rouge Museum will host Bastille Day from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday for a family fun day with a French twist.

Activities will include French food, music, art demonstrations and hands-on activities. The event is free.

Bastille Day is an event designed to complement the museum’s current exhibit “A Louisianan’s Grand Tour in the Belle Époque.”

The exhibit is inspired by the diary of Aurelie “LeLe” Levert, of St. Delphine Plantation in Addis, who, at the age of 25, traveled to Europe with her sister, brother and cousin during the Belle Époque.

The group spent the summer of 1900 traveling in western Europe as well as London, but spent most of its time in Paris for the famed Exhibition Universelle (World’s Fair) of 1900.

Christina Nicosia, lead baker and pastry instructor at the Louisiana Culinary Institute, will be on hand Sunday for Bastille Day for French pastry making demonstrations and local Cajun band “Brown Town” will provide live music all day.
