Crawfish, music and fun were on the menu at the 4th Annual Crawfish Boil-off on May 14, held at the Southdown Bar and Grill. Over $14,000 was raised—far exceeding the program’s goal. The event featured 22 teams competing for prizes for the best boiled crawfish. The event also featured live music, a bounce house and other children’s entertainment and a live auction. One of the highlights was the crawfish themselves, which were served directly out of a pirogue (a traditional Cajun fishing boat).
