Here’s where the stretchy pants will come in handy! Big Boy’s is a showcase of the best food on the bayou. Dozens of cook-off teams line the blocks of Downtown Thibodaux early in the day cooking up favorites like jambalayas, sauce picantes, and chilis. A $10 entry fee gets you all the tastings you can fit in your belly. While you’re feasting there’s plenty of live music to enjoy, too. It’s like one big Cajun block party!
