Delta Crawfish Festival Making Move to Jonesboro

APRIL 27, 2004 - Posted at 1:48 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - After originating in Paragould last year, the Delta Crawfish Festival is making the move to downtown Jonesboro this year.

May 22 marks the date of the 2nd Annual Delta Crawfish Festival, and organizers promise "plenty of food, music and family fun," leading to a pops performance by the Delta Symphony to close the evening.

Sponsors say last year's festival in Paragould drew an estimated 5,000 people from eight states.  "This year, we're working with the Downtown Jonesboro Association," said festival coordinator Joe Jackson.  Jackson says the event will include Cajun dance lessons, separate crawfish eating contest for both corporate teams and individuals, and games and activities for children.

More information is available by calling Jackson at 501-952-7160, or on the Web at www.DeltaCrawfishFestival.com.
