Cajun Clay Night takes on a traditional Cajun flair again with this year’s king and queen, Geoff Legg and Olivia Pevec, Carbondale locals and art enthusiasts who had their first date at the first CCN night five years ago. They will be adorned in wild, newly created costumes especially designed for Cajun Clay Night by local seamstress Stace Yater.

Twirp Anderson will once again act as auctioneer. And, new this year, there will be margaritas and limbo.

The $40 ticket includes one of the more than 350 handcrafted ceramic bowls, hearty Cajun gumbo or vegetarian red beans prepared by the Blue Creek Grill in El Jebel, plus rice, crusty Grana bread, other assorted food treats from local vendors, the famous Crocodillyicious cake, Cajun music, dancing, a silent and live auction, and coffee or iced tea. There will be a cash bar for beer and wine, and specialty coffee drinks.

Tickets are now on sale only at the Clay Center, 135 Main St. in Carbondale. Or, call 963-2529. This is the Clay Center’s major annual fund-raiser.
