HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - An annual event featuring mud bugs and live music happens in Hattiesburg Saturday.

All you can eat crawfish will be offered at Walthall Park for the 21st Downtown Crawfish Jam.

It’s a fundraiser that will help pay for upkeep of the park.

Adult tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the gate.

Junior tickets for those under 21 are $30 and children 12 and under get in free.

“The upkeep of this property costs us about $10,000 a year for maintenance and lawn-keeping,” said Andrea Saffle, a Crawfish Jam committee member. “That’s the biggest thing we use. Other money that we have left over from this, we do beautification projects around the neighborhood.”

The music starts at 11 a.m. and will last until 5:30 p.m.
