Soulard Mardi Gras is running low on Cajun Cook-Off at Home Boxes


ST. LOUIS – With Soulard Mardi Gras happening virtually this year, organizers are giving everyone a chance to enjoy some of the traditional Cajun food at home, but time is running out.

Soulard Mardi Gras announced they have a limited amount of Cajun Cook-Off at Home Boxes remaining before the live virtual event on Saturday January 23 at 2:00 p.m.

When you purchase an at home box, you’re entered to win a dinner for ten from a celebrity chef.

There has been some misinformation out there about 2021’s Soulard Mardi Gras and organizers want to clear that up.

“Even if it’s not something that we are doing, people still know that it’s Mardi Gras. So we’ve been working hand in glove with the city and others to try to avoid incidents like that,” President of the Mardi Gras Foundation Mack Bradley said. “So if you want to enjoy Mardi Gras in 2022, the best thing you can do is do Mardi Gras safe at home in ’21.”

The organizers designed virtual events that were engaging and captured the spirit of Mardi Gras.

You can find accurate information on all the events on their website or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram @stlmardigras.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
