LAUREL, Miss (WDAM) - Laurel Main Street is proud to announce the comeback of Community Bank’s “Crawfest” in downtown Laurel.

The event will be staged from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 17.

Entry will be at the corner of West Oak and Front streets, with live music, beverages and tasting tents running down Front Street.

Tickets can be purchased on-site or online through Laurel Main Street’s website or Facebook page.

Tickets are $15 for general tasting, and a $30 ticket adds 5 pounds of crawfish and add-ins to take home.

Both tickets allow attendees to browse teams and taste any crawfish or add-ins, so that they may vote for the People’s Choice of best overall boil.

Official judges for the event will choose the winners for other categories, and all will be announced at 2:30 p.m.
