The Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) held a fais do-do at the Lake Charles Civic Center this past weekend, as part of the ongoing Travel Media Showcase (TMS).
The TMS, which lasts through Friday, is a national conference of professional travel writers. The CVB was on hand to help conference attendees immerse themselves in Cajun culture, from food to music, dancing and more.
"We truly have a spirit that encapsulates the joy of living in Southwest Louisiana. It's something that people have to experience for themselves to understand what that expression means. So, the bureau created a fais do-do so that media professionals could eat our delicious cuisine and dance to a Cajun band," said Shelley Johnson, executive director of the CVB.
Live music at the fais do-do was provided by the Ecker Jazz Trio and Chris Miller & Bayou Roots.
