The World's Largest Crawfish Boil was a huge success! Zatarain's broke 2 records in just 2 hours after selling out 29,000 pounds of crawfish to over 8,000 people.
According to the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the event broke the record for the largest attendance, and the largest amount of crawfish boiled at a crawfish boil in a single day. More importantly, the event raised $40,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank!
Though the crawfish didn't last as long as planned, it was a really amazing event - with free live music and a ton of beer for sale!
Hopefully the success of the event will encourage more organizations and companies to throw similar city-wide crawfish boils!
I had a wonderful time eatin' crawfish, drink in' beer and showing off my fabulous crawfish shoes!
How cute are those?
