HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood hosted its 15th Annual Downtown Crawfish Jam on Saturday.

Hundreds of residents came out to Walthall Park and enjoyed a day of great music, hot dogs, hamburgers, and of course the 6,000 pounds worth of crawfish.

The event featured a lineup of musical acts including three bands that will be performing at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.

“The money that we raise today goes to the Walthall Foundation, and we’re donating a portion of the proceeds to the San Antonio Foundation,” said Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood President, Andrea Saffle.

The event was sponsored by Southern Beverage Co., and Budweiser.
