One of the premiere culinary events in Louisiana is coming up on October 17 at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette - the 8th annual Boudin Cook Off! Festivities for this fun family friendly event will be held outdoors from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. In addition to the popular boudin eating contest, there's face painting for the kids, a fun jump, delicious tastings, and awesome local entertainment by Rex Street Rounders, the Specklers, and Zydeco Radio.

Admission is free and proceeds will benefit the Historic Preservation Alliance of Lafayette. This is an awesome event, and has been voted one of the Best Food Festivals in America by Gourmet Magazine, so make plans to get a booth, and be part of the cook off, or just show up for the deliciousness on October 17 in downtown Lafayette!
