Festivalgoers can sample 27 different margarita flavors all made with 100 percent agave tequila, ranging from the classic lime to exotic jalapeño pepper to the craft Bourbon St. Hurricane, while tasting fare from local restaurants spanning multiple genres of cuisine, including barbecue, Cajun, Mexican and more. After a highly-successful “Best Margarita Competition,” which was introduced in last year’s festival, both restaurants and mixologists will again compete to take home the title of “Best Margarita.” Competing restaurants include Chulas, Diablo Loco, Lupe Tortilla, and Top Golf.

In addition to the margarita competition, festival attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the salsa and limbo competitions during the event. Entry to the salsa competition is free of charge and open to non-professional dance couples. The veteran duo of Salsa Eddy, salsa enthusiast and instructor, and Crissy Poole, Festival competition organizer and dance professional, will co-host the competitions. The crowd will determine the winner of the salsa competition in true Apollo-style, with the title going to the couple receiving the loudest applause.
