NORFOLK -- The 25th annual Bayou Boogaloo & Cajun Food Festival promises to deliver the heart and soul of Louisiana to visitors of Town Point Park this weekend.

Norfolk Festevents is bringing nationally known chefs from New Orleans to Norfolk to serve up the heart and soul of Louisiana food - dish by dish.

More than 10,000 pounds of live crawfish straight from Louisiana will be boiled up with corn and potatoes throughout the weekend, as well as jambalaya, seafood gumbo, crawfish etouffee, Po' Boy sandwiches, alligator, muffuletta, andouille sausage, and beignets.

There will also be chef-inspired dishes on site for Bayou guests to indulge in, such as Ms. Linda's famous Ya-Ka-Mein, Chef Woody's fish tacos and Jacques-Imo's shrimp and alligator sausage cheesecake.

The Bayou Boogaloo would not be complete without the talent, unique artistry and culture found at the Arts Market of New Orleans.

Gates open at 5 p.m. and admission is $10 all weekend. Visitors presenting an AT&T phone can enter for free.
