What is Mardi Gras without gumbo? A gumbo cook-off and parade set to happen in the Provenance Community Saturday, March 2 10:30-1:30 in Windrush Park.
This Golden Gator Gumbo cook-off and outdoor parade that celebrate Mardi Gras are family-friendly and open to the public. Guests will be able to watch the parade, purchase slices of Lowder’s King Cake from Holy Angels’ residents, listen to live music from Professor Porkchop and the Dirty Dishes, take pictures in the free photo booth, sample gumbo, and help decide the People’s Choice gumbo award.
Tickets for the gumbo tasting are $5, and children under 6 are free. The Louisiana Food Prize will be joining the Provenance Community for this year’s Golden Gator Gumbo Cookoff to bring their special flair to the event.
The residents of Holy Angels will be on-site, both marching in the parade, and selling King Cake from Lowder’s. This partnership allows Holy Angels residents to celebrate Mardi Gras and fund their various programs through the King Cake sales.
At the event’s conclusion, attendees are invited to the official After Party at Frank’s LA Kitchen, where event participants will be offered drink specials with their official Golden Gator Gumbo Cookoff event cup.
