It’s Mardi Gras season, so you better have plans to get some gumbo in your belly if you haven’t already.

If you make a really great pot of gumbo, there’s still time to enter the Fais Do-Do & Gumbo Cook Off at Rain Lily Farm, 914 Shady Lane, from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 25.

Farmhouse Delivery is hosting its annual Fais Do Do & Gumbo Cook Off on Feb. 25. Contributed by Farmhouse Delivery

Farmhouse Delivery is hosting the event, now in its fifth year, with live Cajun music, beer and food from more than a dozen gumbo cook-off contestants. Tickets cost $25 at the door, and all proceeds benefit Brighter Bites, the Houston-based nonprofit that distributes nearly 40,000 pounds of produce a week through local schools.
