Crew of Cankton Courir De Mardi Gras & Gumbo Cook-Off
February 22 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
The first annual Crew of Cankton Courir De Mardi Gras & Gumbo Cook-Off will be held on the Saturday before Mardi Gras at Landon Pitre Memorial Park in Cankton. Enjoy authentic Cajun cooking and choose the best tasting gumbo at their gumbo cook-off. Guys can chase the chicken in this traditional courir and ladies can ride horses or horse drawn wagons alongside. If you want to ride or run, you must be in costume. You can find yours here.
This celebration is a family-friendly Mardi Gras event with fun jumps, face painting, and a children’s chicken run in the afternoon.
