To my Louisiana friends,

I am writing today to invite you to one of the first members of the Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism’s new #OnlyLouisiana Ambassador Program!

Today, we launched the new #OnlyLouisiana Ambassador Program, or as we like to call ourselves – the Bayou Krewe, via @LouisianaTravel social media channels. This program encourages Louisianians and Louisiana fans to snap their views of Louisiana and spread the #OnlyLouisiana joie de vivre to their followers and friends online and around the world!

As a tourism professional in our great state, I’m asking you to be among the first members of the Bayou Krewe by signing up at and posting your #OnlyLouisiana moments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Be sure to follow @LouisianaTravel on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the links below to be a part of the launch and help spread the word about the Bayou Krewe and #OnlyLouisiana. 
To view an introductory video highlighting some of the photos already tagged with #OnlyLouisiana and shared on social media, click on one of the Bayou Krewe images.

We encourage you to help lead the way and participate in the program. Simply sign up to be an Ambassador at
I can’t wait to see your photos, videos, and love for our amazing state as an Ambassador to Louisiana to get the word out about all the great things to see, taste and experience that you can find only in Louisiana.


Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser
