May 5 & 6, 2012 | Gumbo Cookoff and Blessing of the Fleet | Kemah ~ gallery 1 ~ gallery 2

On Saturday, May 5, the annual Gumbo Cookoff was going strong in the city of Kemah.  Secret ingredients were being put to the test as cook-off teams prepared their prized recipes; the aroma smelled wonderful as it drifted across the Visitors Center. 

Sunday, in celebration of the 44th annual Blessing of the Fleet, Father Paul Felix of Shrine of the True Cross Catholic Church performed the blessing of the boats for the 2012 season. Emceeing from the outdoor patio of the Cadillac Bar & Grill, Kelly Williams introduced each of the vessels, private and commercial, as spectators cheered. 

Many thanks to the folks at the Boardwalk for the exciting ride on The Beast!  Listen in to Talk of the Bay.
