Crawfish and Blues on the Menu Saturday in Downtown Paragould

APRIL 22, 2005 - Posted at 4:50 p.m. CDT

 

PARAGOULD, AR - The combination of boiled crawfish and blues will be offered up for those who venture into downtown Paragould Saturday afternoon.  The occasion is the first-ever "Crawfish at the Crossing" festival.

The event is sponsored by Main Street Paragould, and is a variation of a Spring blues festival which had previously been held downtown.  Blues will still be on the agenda, as several local bands are scheduled to perform at the festival, which begins at noon.

Crawfish meals will be served for $10 per plate, while an all-you-can-eat crawfish ticket will be available for $25.  Meanwhile, the event will also sponsor a Cajun food cook-off for local chefs.  Winners are expected to be announced around 5 p.m.
