Let's get ready to gumbooo!!! The first ever Gumbo Gladiators kicks off Saturday morning at Festival Plaza.
Almost thirty teams will face off to see who can create the best pot of gumbo. Proceeds will fund the Volunteers for Youth Justice.
"Somewhere between 5:30 and 6 in the morning we will have 28 teams arriving here to setup their individual tents and cooking spaces and get going. They have to make their roux on sight. That's the primary rule here so we know made gumbo themselves," said Angie Brown, VYJ President.
Admission into the event is free. Gumbo samples only cost a dollar, and a whole bowl just four dollars.
