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.
