Bring your friends, family and appetite to the first ever Gumbo Cook-Off, this Saturday on Franklin Street. It's presented by the Franklin Street Events Association and in addition to filling up your belly, it will help raise money for a bunch of different charities.

Amy Word and Karen Conaway, from the FSEA, came by the station today to give us more information about this 1st annual event that will kick off the Mardi Gras celebration. Take a listen to our interview below. Visit their official Facebook page or their website for more information.
