From Our Editors
- The Crawfish: are obviously out in abundance—no less than 15,000 pounds, in fact. That's enough to take center stage in the annual crawfish-eating contest, and have plenty left over to be featured in the gumbo cook-off.
- The Fest: Musical acts such as alt-rock country star William Clark Green and zydeco luminary Dr. Zog keep the party going all weekend long.
- For Families: Children can get their thrills on one of many carnival rides, or sign up in the kids' division of the crawfish-eating contest.
