The festival gets its crawfish straight from Oregon’s Lake Billy Chinook and Pacific Seafood. Make like a kid and eat these crustaceans with your hands — hot, cold, jambalay, gumbo, hushpuppy or crawfish cocktail. (If you ask for utensils they’ll think you’re joking.)
“Through the years, the Crawfish Festival has become a huge success. The average number attendees each year is estimated at 12,000 people. Children and adults alike come to enjoy the activities which include a parade, a dog show, live music, craft vendors, food and of course, the crawfish themselves.”
