Lafayette Travel's "Eat Lafayette" has partnered with Louisiana's lieutenant governor to bring back "Taste of Eat Lafayette, the Louisiana Seafood Cookoff".

Last year's event was affected by the coronavirus pandemic, so this year's event is much anticipated; people are ready to party!

The President/CEO of Lafayette Travel, Ben Berthelot, says that the event helps showcase the reason people visit Louisiana: the food. People connect to each other and to their cultural roots through cuisine, and visitors from outside Acadiana sure do like ours.
