Inaugural Most Holy Trinity Gumbo Festival this weekend

Mark your calendars and get ready to have a good time this weekend in Pass Christian.

The inaugural Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church Gumbo Festival kicks off Friday and runs through Sunday.

Along with the namesake gumbo cookoff on Saturday, the three-day event will feature multiple music acts, a car show, cornhole tournament, and games for the kids.

Festival Organizer Scottie Cuevas says proceeds from the festival will go towards efforts to get younger generations more involved in church life. “Our parish is awesome. They have really been supportive, coming out. It’s been a fun year putting it together. So, we’re going to see what happens and hopefully this thing will grow bigger and bigger.”

Admission to the festival is free, but there are other opportunities to contribute through t-shirt sales and raffle opportunities.

The festival is open on Friday from 5 to 11 p.m. then Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 at night and then on Sunday from noon to 7.
