The first annual Battle of the Roux in Crowley will be fun for the entire family. It will be held on Friday, December 5th at the Crowley Town Club. It is hosted by the CTC Ladies Auxiliary. This event was planned to give the community something fun to do.

If you think you have the best gumbo, sign up for Battle of the Roux and let everyone else enjoy it too. If you don’t cook the best gumbo, then grab the family and head over to get some of the best gumbo around.
