King Cake Contest kicks off today
It is official! The King Cake Contest is well underway.
That means everyday starting now those visiting the Ocean Springs area can stop by the Visitor’s Center for a piece of king cake.
Local businesses submit cake, not only for a chance to win the contest, but for the opportunity to help educate visitors about the Mardi Gras season.
With each taste, visitors cast their vote for which business has the best Mardi Gras treat. Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cynthia Sutton said, “We’ve had people far away from Massachusetts, West Virginia, Florida, Illinois come in today, Pennsylvania, who have already tried the king cake and every single one of them didn’t know what a king cake was. So, it’s been an exciting contest so far.”
The contest will conclude February 21st.
