As St. James Parish is busy preparing for the huge Festival of the Bonfires, others are preparing for one of the main events, the gumbo cook-off. Sheba Turk has a gumbo cook-off of her own as a preview of the great kinds of gumbo you can get this weekend at the festival.
The 24th Annual Festival of the Bonfires is Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Lutcher Recreational Park on La. Highway 3193. For more information, including the line-up of festivities, click here.
