Every mid-April, locals and visitors can experience the unique flavors and styles of Cajun cuisine and music at the Zydeco and Crawfish Festival. At this annual event, the sweet sounds of Zydeco (which is a genre of Cajun music that combines native Louisianan music with rhythm and blues) and smells of boiled crawfish permeate the air and signify a day of food and fun. There’s even a 5K that you can participate in to build up your appetite!
Details on This Fun-Filled Event
