Cajun Country Comes To Wichita Falls – Cajun Fest 2012

Downtown Wichita Falls will once again get a taste of the bayou next weekend with the 5th annual Cajun Fest at the downtown Farmers Market.  Being married to a Cajun woman and having spent my fair share of time in southern Louisiana, I know how much fun these kinds of festivals can be.  And if you’re like me and you love a good meal, some Cajun and creole cuisine can make one of the finest meals around!

Cajun Fest gets under way at noon Saturday, May 12th and Cynthia Laney from Downtown Wichita Falls Development says tickets are still available for advanced purchase.  You can pick them up at all three Wichita Falls United Supermarket locations, at the DWFD offices on the 4th floor of ‘Big Blue’ downtown and at the Sheppard AFB ITT office.  Advanced tickets are just $5 and kids 12 and under get in free!

The gumbo cook off is on and they are still taking entrants!  The crawfish eating contest is back as well. You can download entry forms here.  I’d enter, but it just wouldn’t be fair.  I’ve had professional training ya know.  Sadly, alligator is off the menu this year.  The cost of the stuff has soared to over $10 per pound!  But take it from me, if you’ve got gumbo, etouffe, crawfish and boudin, you’ve got it made.  Toss in some good Zydeco and traditional Cajun music and it’s like bayou on the Red!

We’ll see you Saturday, May 12 at Cajun Fest!  “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
