Opelousas, LA, October 2, 2023 – The St. Landry Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to introduce its newest member and ambassador, “Landry,” the official mascot of the St. Landry Chamber of Commerce. Landry will play a central role in celebrating the rich equine heritage of our region through the exciting “Horsing Around” campaign.

As St. Landry Parish proudly holds the esteemed title of the “Equine Capital of Louisiana,” the Chamber of Commerce has decided to showcase our equine culture in a fun and engaging way. The Horsing Around campaign invites local businesses to host Landry for a day or two, allowing him to interact with patrons and employees while celebrating the unique equine history of our parish.

Landry will embark on a journey throughout St. Landry Parish, visiting a diverse array of businesses and organizations. Local participants will have the opportunity to take pictures with Landry, showcasing his adventures at their establishments. These photos will be shared across various social media platforms to capture the spirit of the campaign.

To follow Landry’s adventures and stay engaged with the Horsing Around campaign, be sure to follow the hashtags #LilLandry and #HorsingAroundStLandry on social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. You’ll get to witness Landry’s charming personality and the unique experiences he enjoys at each stop.
