Enjoy your Mardi Gras celebration with a side of spice during the weekend of February 18, 2012 by attending gumbo cook-offs during your stay in a Northwest Florida vacation rental! Join us in South Walton or the Forgotten Coast to sample this savory treat.
The 23rd Annual Sandestin Gumbo Festival is sure to spice up your weekend in South Walton. Wander around beautiful Baytowne Wharf as you listen to the live Cajun music and attend informative and fun cooking seminars before sampling the gumbo creations of many Gulf Coast restaurants and businesses. In addition to the gumbo festival, Mardi Gras will also fill the streets as the pet parade takes place.
