Ribbon cutting set for Jefferson Parish Performing Arts Center

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Friday for the Jefferson Parish Performing Arts Center.

The opening of the center on airline drive in Metairie is six years overdue and more than $20 million dollars over budget.

But the end result is being hailed a state-of-the-art facility with a dramatic three story atrium and expansive walls filled with $1 million in art.

The ribbon cutting ceremony starts at 2:30 p.m.
