louisiana_opalousas_gumboThe Ninth Annual Gumbo Cook Off is set for January 31, 2015, in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana.

Always held on the last Saturday of January, the event promises live music, a kid’s activity area, both silent and live auctions, food, drinks, dancing and lots of gumbo.

The grounds open at 8 a.m. for cook off contestants, and 10 a.m. for the general public. The judging takes place at 2 p.m.

While this is a free event, the entry fee to participate in the Cook-Off is $50. Prizes are awarded for First Place Champion, Second place, and Third Place. In addition, a specially designed Gumbo Cook-Off Champ Paddle will be passed from reining last year’s champ to this year’s top choice. Winners of the cook-off will be announced at 4 p.m.

It’ll be held at Frank’s Downtown and Pride Doran Law Firm, at the corner of Landry Street and Oak Street in downtown Opelousas, Louisiana.
