Motes told The Log that the Veteran's category is new to the Gumbo Festival and gives long-time participants a chance to compete directly with other festival stalwarts. Motes said Buster's Bar and Grill, which has participated for all 24 years, will compete in the Veteran's division.


Also up for vote is "The People's Choice" and "Best Display" awards. Festival attendees will cast ballots for the "People's Choice" award, which was awarded to Pompano Joe's last year. With their vote, guests will be eligible for raffle items from participating restaurants. The awards ceremony begins at 4 p.m.


Tickets for the Gumbo Festival are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the event. Tickets can be purchased online at or at Village merchants Graffiti & the Funky Blues Shack or Aloha Surf Company.
