The Red Stick Roux Rally gumbo cookoff, with approximately 50 teams battling it out for bragging rights in several categories, drew a big crowd on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 in the streets near the Old State Capitol and Shaw Center for the Arts. Spectators were treated to live music performances by the Chase Tyler Band and the Chee-Weez, with all proceeds donated to Youth Oasis children’s homeless shelter in Baton Rouge. Local chefs judged categories for Chicken and Sausage, Seafood and Cajun Combo, and spectators could cast their votes for a People’s Choice Award.
