Transport yourself to New Orleans at this Louisiana-style crawfish boil. Guests can sample traditional fare such as crawdads, frog legs, catfish, gumbo, jambalaya, bread pudding and—of course—chicory coffee and beignets, all while a second-line parade dances by. Zydeco music plays throughout the weekend, and there’s a children’s stage with live comedy, magic and balloon twisting for little ones, plus a variety of themed bayou bars (one even has karaoke) for festvialgoers of age.
