NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser will launch a new multi-media initiative to feature open French Quarter restaurants, retailers, and businesses in a new video and social media campaign called “Takin’ it to the Streets.” On Friday, October 23, starting at 3:30 p.m., videographers, photographers, media, locals, and visitors are invited to join Lieutenant Governor Nungesser as he distributes “Louisiana: Feed Your Soul” t-shirts, masks, and hand sanitizers along the world renown Bourbon and Royal Streets in the French Quarter as the city of New Orleans moves into Phase 3.2 of pandemic recovery.
“I am inviting everyone who wants to join me this Friday to meet at 209 Bourbon Street near the corner of Iberville Street at 3:30 p.m.,” says Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser, eager to see the historic city streets and businesses safely return to prosperity and welcome visitors traveling into New Orleans.
“It’s time to open our doors and welcome everyone back to the heart of New Orleans – the French Quarter. Since the pandemic began, we have been giving every visitor ‘Feed Your Soul’ masks and hand sanitizers at all 9 Welcome Centers, 9 state museums, and 21 state parks as a gift to show our hospitality and encourage them to be safe, practice social distancing, and be considerate of others. We are all ready to take necessary safety precautions as we move forward, but it’s time to get back to the way of life New Orleans is most famous for – our hospitality, unique variety of cuisines, and music throughout the city.”
