This year’s festivities will take place on Saturday, Nov. 5 on the Hanson campus, and feature a gumbo and jambalaya cook-off.
Over 20 cooking teams are expected to prepare their versions of these two popular Louisiana staples. Cooking teams will begin preparing their cuisine at 6:30 a.m. and the food judging will begin at 11:30 a.m. Everyone is invited to come out and taste the Southern fare of the competing teams, and vote for their favorite through the People’s Choice Award.
Festival patrons can also enjoy plenty of toe-tapping music while they bid on the silent auction items and browse the arts and crafts. Carnival games, laser tag and other games will be available for the young and the young at heart. Festival goers can also participate in a one-mile fun run, cakewalk and horseshoe pitching tournament.
