LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Specialty hot sauce makers from around the globe are making their way to Lafayette this weekend for the inaugural Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival, where they hope to introduce hot sauce aficionados to new blends and spicy flavors.

Festival director Dana Romero tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1jWHS7B ) more than 100 vendors, including 30 different hot sauce makers, nine bloody mary mix makers, and arts and crafts makers are descending into the Cajun houses of Lafayette’s Acadian Village.

Romero says the oldest vendor participating in the event, CaJohn’s Fiery Foods out of Columbus, Ohio, has been crafting hot sauces for only 13 years.

The festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
