Get Your Crawfish Fix with First-Ever ‘Crawfest’ in Shreveport, LA
Anyone else's stomach growling at that headline? This is surely right up the Ark-La-Tex's alley.
Crawfish season is a tradition and a way of life around these parts. This year is supposed to be one of the best years for crawfish because of the winter conditions we encountered. That being said, have you had you crawfish fix?
If not, you're about to.
Crawfest is the first festival of its kind to be held at Betty Virginia Park in Shreveport, Louisiana. It's an all-day event that will be held on Saturday, March 25 with free admission.
