NEDERLAND — Whether one is looking for a meal on the go, a sweet fried treat or just something to quench their thirst, the Cuisine Walk at the Nederland Heritage Festival can do the job.

Wind and the occasional light sprinkle of rain did not keep people away from the second day of the NHF on Wednesday, and one area that stayed crowded was the Cuisine Walk. From hotdogs, BBQ and nachos to traditional carnival food such as funnel cake and fried Oreos, festivalgoers paced the strip of a couple dozen booths, all offering something different, in search of a snack.

All of the booths use the money to pay for their costs and the profit goes to charity.

One of the many booths on the Cuisine Walk is ran by First United Methodist Church

Linda Sedtale said fundraising has gone well so far.

“It usually picks up around 6 [p.m.],” she said. “People are getting off of work, going home, showering and coming out here for supper. You’d be surprised. Rain or shine, they will come.”

The FUMC serves stuffed baked potatoes, baked potato soup and banana pudding. All of their proceeds are going towards missions work.

The Cuisine Walk begins at the front of the Nederland Heritage Festival building.

Cuisine Walk hours:

Thursday and Friday 4-11 p.m.

Saturday 10 a.m.-11 p.m.

Sunday noon-6 p.m.

The forecast shows early rain, but the weather should to clear up before the carnival opens at 4 p.m.

Thursday is also the second $25 wristband day, meaning one can ride all of the rides with the purchase of a wristband. The next wristband day will be on the final day of the festival Sunday.

Thursday’s guests services will be hosted by Learning Hands Preschool from 4-7 p.m. and Dree Bee’s Bakery from 7-11 p.m.

Curse & the Cure will take the Philpott Ford Stage at 7 p.m.
