It was all about the gumbo Tuesday at The B.O.B. Make that Fat Tuesday at The B.O.B.

The nine-hour Fat Tuesday celebration included a gumbo competition, a masquerade contest, music, street performers, Creole cuisine and a craft beer and specialty coffee pairing.

But with nearly two and a half dozen entries, it was all about the gumbo -- with Greatest Hits 98.7 WFGR's Jojo Girard, of "The Jojo Show," serving up his own homemade version of the delectable dish.

The top three finishers in The B.O.B.'s Fat Tuesday Gumbo Challenge were Gander's, a new restaurant opening next month at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Grand Rapids Airport; Bootleg; and Squirrels 2. In the People's Choice category, What the Gumbo took first and CitySēn Lounge second.

The masquerade contest had more than a half dozen entries, with some true Mardi Gras partisans on hand vying for the $500 grand prize.
