Let’s celebrate the all mighty catfish at the annual Crescent City Catfish Festival! This event features so much to do and see! It all kicks off with a parade like no other. Featuring a mix of just about everything from local business, to politicians, and quite a few shrines, you can relax and watch the parade pass by you. When its over head on over from some of the Very best catfish you have ever sunk you teeth into! If you’re curious, be sure to pick up some swamp cabbage while you’re there too! While the Crescent City Catfish Festival is free, you will want to bring along some cash for the catfish meals and some drinks. The dinners were a whopping $10 each, but boy were they worth it! Looking back, my wife and I could have probably split a single dinner, as we were so stuffed with food! You are also more than welcome to bring your own food and drinks if you want to chill out picnic style and enjoy the scenery. There are tables setup for everyone to enjoy, and it’s a great way to meet your fellow Catfish Festers! If you don’t want to dine with strangers, be sure to bring your own fold up chair. Leashed pets seemed to be welcome, but there are so many people at this event you may want to leave Fido at home for this one. As you get into the main intersections of the town there are a few places that offer parking for $10 and $5. If you want free parking, it’s available at town lots, and side streets, but be prepared to walk a bit. Along the North side of town, be sure to checkout the annual car show as well!
Per the Rotary Club’s Press Release:
