The 24th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off sponsored by the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce was held October 11-13 in downtown New Iberia. More than 40,000 visitors sampled gumbo prepared by nearly 100 of the best local, national and international teams. The “Red, White & Roux” theme coincided with a 50-year reunion of personnel, instructors and student pilots formerly based at the New Iberia Naval Station.
