PARTICIPATE: The Crawfish Mambo team is now accepting applications for four-member boil teams for the "Best Tasting Crawfish" competition. Each team will cook a minimum of 10 sacks of crawfish. The $250 entry fee provides teams crawfish to cook and they need to supply their own cooking utensils, spices and any additional fixings they wish to offer the crowds.

A panel of celebrity judges will determine the winner of the Cook-off Competition and the first, second and third place winners will be announced. Each team is also invited to compete for the Best Decorated Booth Award.
