Our 15th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off was a huge success!
Teams began at the crack of dawn— 6 AM was an early, but crucial start for the 15th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off at the Rayne Frog Festival Pavilion. Acadia Parish Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and staff, volunteers, and teams began unloading and setting up for an exciting day ahead. At 7 AM teams could begin boiling water, and 30 minutes later they began making thier roux. This year, we welcomed 15 teams who prepared 17 different gumbos within the categories of: Non Seafood Jar Roux, Seafood Jar Roux, Non Seafood Homemade Roux, and Seafood Homemade Roux. These teams were businesses and individuals from across Acadia Parish, who were either new or returning competitors.
