Jefferson Performing Arts Center opens with a flourish

(WVUE) - Celebrations begin, following Friday's ribbon cutting at the Jefferson Performing Arts Center at 6400 Airline Drive in Metairie.

At the ceremony, Parish President John Young commented on how long they've waited for the project to be finished, which was six years overdue and more than $20 million over budget.

The official grand opening gala is Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
