Contestants will be divided into heats, and the winner of each heat will compete in a final round. All competitors will receive a Hurricane cocktail in a souvenir pint glass. First place will be awarded a $100 gift certificate to Cactus Bar and Grill, second place a "Hurricanes at Home" gift basket to take Mardi Gras home with you, and third place a cooler stocked with Abita Beer. Plenty of Mardi Gras accessories will be passed out to the crowd.
Cactus will offer a variety of food and drink specials throughout the month of February. $1 from each special will be donated to New Leash on Life.
