“We’ve had great fun with this dish for 27 years,” said company spokesman Pierre Hilzim. “It’s just really good comfort food with a flavor profile that makes you want to eat more and more.”

Also returning will be alligator pies, fried green tomatoes, crawfish and shrimp, jambalaya, po-boys, gumbo, boudin and other foods that feed the soul.

Juan Johnson, of Papa Ninety Catering, said this will be the seventh year they’re bringing boudin, crawfish remoulade and creole hot tamales to the crowds.

“It’s just a real fun time,” he said. “There are great crowds _ rain or shine _ and it’s always fun explaining to tourists what boudin is.”
