The Crowd

The festival ran from noon until the evening hours, so the gathered crowd, which was never unmanageably large, had the opportunity to take their time and sample as much as they wanted.

Mama Blue’s Shrimp Gumbo

Shrimp, fish, and sausage, along with vegetables and okra, came together for a rich and satisfying gumbo. 

Jambalaya

This traditional jambalaya featured chicken and Andouille sausage, and was just the right amount of spicy. Each bowl came with a skewer of shrimp.

Popcorn Shrimp

Crunchy battered and fried shrimp, spicy pepperoncini, and roasted red peppers were served along with cocktail sauce and spicy mayo.

Shrimp Po’Boy Sandwich

You also had the choice of putting the popcorn shrimp onto a French loaf, "dressed" with lettuce, tomato, and chipotle mayo.

Shrimper’s Net Catch

These peel-and-eat shrimp were steamed in beer, and served with your choice of garlic or Cajun spice powder.
