Mudbug Madness Festival

While everyone back home celebrated the start of Memorial Day weekend by lounging on the beach, we embraced the balmy, 95° Saturday by attending Mudbug Madness, a street festival that is basically a 4-day crawfish boil. We were laughing reminiscing on the fact that a year ago I thought “mudbug” meant “roach.”

One of several vendors at the festival boiling large quantities of mudbugs.

Crawfish close up.

Leave it to me to attend a crawfish boil and seek out the standard chicken dish. Note that this is fried chicken, thus proving that after a year in the Deep South, even the healthiest of food snobs will adjust their eating habits.

 (But I really just ordered this for the sweet potato chips).

Souvenir cup!
