Crawfish fest

Went to the Crawfish Fest today at the sussex county fairgrounds. Angie had a bunch of stuff going on and couldn't go. SO we brought a cooler and some tuperware ( genius isn't it?? people in line with us thought so) And brought back, boiled crawfish, etouffee, jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish pie, crawfish bread, alligator sausages, beignets, sweet potato pie, strawberry pie, and bread pudding.. and yes we did find other stuff to eat while we were there. WE split a catfish po-boy. Split some red beans and rice w/ sausage, deep fried veggies, shrimp creole, ice cream& iced cafe au lait) We got the bracelets to drink alcohol, but the only beer they had was bud and mich- yuck. So we ended up drinking tommy bahamas hurricane, and pina coladas. If anyome ever gets the opportunity to go it is definitely a great time. They bring up a lot of musicians and bands from New Orleans, cooks are all from down there. There are tents selling jewelry, glass, and all kinds of other hand crafted things. Here are some pics.

We got there about 1, and had to park like a million miles uphill - more of a problem when we were walking back.

rigging to use HUGE baskets about 6x6x6 (feet) to boil the crawfish. The only time they had one of the baskets lifted, I didn't have my camera handy.


  1. What a wonderful day! A bit of New Orleans brought right to your door, so to speak.

  2. Great pictures and all the food sounds wonderful.
