When: Sun., April 15, 12-6 p.m. 2012
This annual crawfish festival is celebrating its 20th year with expanded space on Riverside Drive between Union and Beale. The extra room means another stage for live music, but the general stats are the same: lots of crawfish (16,000 pounds) and lots of games (crawfish bobbing, crawfish toss, etc.). Performing this year are Webb Dalton, Bayou Boys, and Tout Le Mon.
Admission is free. Buckets of crawfish are $20. (Bring cash.) Tickets to Harrahâ€™s Swamp VIP tent with seating, shade, and unlimited crawfish and drinks are $75 per person and $125 per couple.
Proceeds go to Porter-Leath.
