Ready for a little Cajun action? The Big Easy is coming to Big Canoe when the Third Annual Crawfish Boil rocks the marina on Saturday, May 13. The pots start boiling at 3:30 in the afternoon and folks will party hearty until long after sunset, like around 9:30 p.m.
The cost is $15 per person, $7 for kids. Extra plates are just $7 in case you bring a Hungry Man’s appetite with you. Plates will fill with mounds of bright red crawfish with potatoes and corn playing supporting roles. What to drink? It’s strictly BYO.
The feast will be prepared by Big Canoe’s own Jeff Moreau who really knows how to stir up the distinct flavor of Louisiana’s moss filled bayous. Besides that, Jeff’s a fun guy!
Not only will the sounds of smacking lips echo over Lake Petit, but the Pioneer Chicken Stand Band will entertain from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. with their high energy, bluegrass sounds. The marina will rock on May 13, count on it!
Are you thinking . . . Wow, will I have to hike four miles carrying my chair and drink cooler to get to the party? Not to worry. Shuttles will run non-stop from the Big Canoe Chapel’s lower parking lot so you’ll get to the action and back without a hassle. As the old ad touts, leave the driving to us. Or, if you want to try your luck finding marina parking, please carpool.
Okay, this sounds way too good to be true. There must be a catch, and here it is. The boil is limited to the first 150 folks who call or email in their reservations. The Big Canoe Marina number is (706) 268-3303 and email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Act fast!
Go ahead and wear your official crawfish eating shirt. You know, the one that graced your belly at the last two boils. Nobody will judge. You might want to bring a bib too, just in case. Remember the Cajun mantra – Pinch, peel, eat, repeat!
