One of the things I like most about New Orleans is the food; and gumbo and crawfish are both near the top of my food “must do’s.” So, I was so excited to learn that we’re about to have our first Gumbo and Crawfish Festival from 2-6 p.m. April 18 at Hill Wheatley Plaza in downtown Hot Springs.
This is a great opportunity for visitors to come to Hot Springs for a weekend to enjoy some great Hot Springs hospitality with local residents and to sample delicious gumbo and crawfish while enjoying live music. Spa City Blues sponsors the fundraising event with proceeds going to community enrichment activities such as:
• Gumbo and Crawfish Festival
• Hot Springs Craft Beer Festival
• Blues in the Schools
• Hot Springs Blues Festival
Any event that takes place in Historic Downtown Hot Springs is fun to attend, with great food and lots of laughter. Before or after the Festival, Hot Springs offers several art galleries, unique boutique shopping, luxurious spas on Bath House Row and museums including the Gangster Museum. For more information on the Festival, go online to www.hsgumbofest.com.
Hot Springs is a great place to visit any time of year, but the first Gumbo and Crawfish Festival sounds like a great way to kick off spring in Hot Springs.
