Live From Breaux Bridge- It's The Crawfish Festival !

It was a beautiful day at The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. A tad warm and humid, but with a nice breeze, which kept it from feeling quite so hot. Thousands upon thousands of fans of some of the area's hottest bands were cutting the rug at the festival today, while the aroma of tons of spicy crawfish filled the air and enticed many to indulge in the tasty mudbugs. I ate at least 5 lbs and they were FAB, and so hot and spicy! Cest bon, cher!

I had my eye on this one food booth called Roger's Cajun Pistols. A little later after some Zydeco dancing, I decided to try the Crab, Shrimp, and Crawfish Pistols and "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", they were fabulous! Oh cest' bon!

The Cajun dance contest was a blast and was the fine art of Cajun and Zydeco dancing at it's best. We took a break and headed over to Daiquiris on Wheels for a little refreshment in the form of frozen strawberries and then headed over to the Festival Stage where Steve Riley and The Mamou Playboys were playing and rev-ing up the crowd. The heat was really rising off the dance floor with a whole lot of boogie-ing going on.

Another fun day and another great festival! Let the good times roll!
