Pinch A Palooza is all about the crawfish

Posted by Deanie's Seafood on Mar 26 2015

More than just your typical crawfish boil: compete to be the Crawfish Eating Champion and race live crawfish!

In South Louisiana, crawfish are more than just something to eat. They are a reason for people to gather together when the weather starts to warm up and indulge in their favorite traditions built around the mudbugs. Louisianians anticipate the start of crawfish season all year and when it’s finally time to eat them, people travel to their favorite local restaurants and seafood markets to buy them already prepared or buy sacks of live crawfish to boil in their backyards with friends and family.
