Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser visited Lake Charles Wednesday to promote and talk about the 16th Annual Louisiana Seafood Cook-Off being held in Lake Charles.

In previous years, the cook-off has been held in Lafayette, but it will be held here in Lake Charles to promote tourism.

The cook-off will welcome many Louisiana chefs cooking up some delicious Cajun cuisine and competing for the crown.

“It’s so important to get back to those pre-COVID numbers in tourism as quickly as possible. Local businesses, especially this region, are still recovering from the storms, that we do absolutely everything we can to drive tourists and Louisianians to stay-cation to every corner of the state,” Lt. Gov. Nungesser (R) said.

The cook-off will be June 27 at the Golden Nugget Casino.
