HEBER-OVERGAARD: Arizona Crawfish Festival
Up to 10,000 pounds of crawfish will be trapped in Mogollon Rim lakes, rivers and streams in the week leading up to this 10-year-old festival, where the tasty little crustaceans will be boiled, seasoned and gobbled up with red potatoes and corn.
You’ll also find a crawfish-eating contest, Cajun food vendors, frozen daiquiris, live Cajun and country music, a beer garden and vendors selling arts, crafts and antiques. Order your meal online in advance, and you’re guaranteed 3 lbs. of boiled crawfish to eat at the event.
