Happy Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival weekend! This year marks the 56th annual celebration of everything we love about our beloved crawfish. Today, I found this French documentary about the festival from 1968, and it's pretty incredible.
Well, it's not really in Lafayette, but THE event of the weekend in Acadiana is the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. Gates open at 4:30 on Friday and the party lasts all weekend long. Jazz Fest also continues through Sunday in New Orleans.
Friday through Sunday, it will be wall-to-wall music, fun and crawfish! The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival gets underway on Friday May 4. Gates open at 4pm, opening ceremonies at 4:30, with the Celebrity Crawfish Eating Contest to follow.
