It's back baby! Mudbug Madness 2021 officially kicks off this Friday at 11:30 AM.

I know I speak for everyone when I say I genuinely missed Mudbug Madness last year. For me, the cancellation of one of my favorite festivals was the first real sign that not only was the pandemic very real but that it was here to stay.

Fast forward to today and we're now just a couple of days away from enjoying one of the most iconic festivals in town once again. Mudbug Madness 2021 features an awesome musical line-up including Willie Jones, The Seratones, and Wayne Toups to name a few.

Of course, the music is just a portion of the fun, as thousands will gather to drink coldies and chow down on some of the best crawfish NWLA has to offer. Aside from the music and the crawfish, festival-goers will also have the opportunity to compete in some great competitions like the Crawfish Calling Contest, and the Crawfish Eating Contest.

Friday, at 11:30, the festival will officially begin with its opening ceremonies and its annual Celebrity Crawfish Eating Contest. In years past, I've seen hundreds of folks gather to watch local celebrities battle it out for the top prize. Of course, I'm not one to brag but this year's kick-off event is a little special for me. For starters, I'll have my daughters with me for the first time, but also, I will be going for the coveted three-peat. After years of finishing dead last, or pretty close to it, I finally to the next step and became a champion back in 2018. Then, the next year, I doubled down and took home the crown once again. Now, it's time for the three-peat, followed by a ride into the sunset as this will be my last celebrity crawfish eating contest.

Come out and celebrate the beginning of one of our favorite events, Mudbug Madness, at 11:30 AM on May 28th!
