You may park at no charge in the Ladd-Peebles Stadium parking lot.


What should I wear?
This is an outdoor event. High heels are not advised. Last year the weather was warm enough for shorts and tee-shirts during the afternoon. It did rain before the event, but the sun shined down on us from noon to three!


Should I bring food or beverages?
There will be plenty of gumbo and chili for you to eat.  Food is included with your admission.  Soda and water will be available for purchase at vending booths.


Do I need to bring money?
There will be beverages and ice cream available for purchase at the event. All proceeds benefit the Regan Robinson Young Scholarship.


What is the People’s Choice Award?
The People’s Choice Award is your opportunity to select your favorite gumbo or chili.  Tasters vote for their favorite team by giving money to the teams at the event, $1 = 1 vote.  All money goes directly to the scholarship.
