Bring your appetite:
If we could only give one piece of advice, it'd be to come hungry! There will be plenty of great food options, but most importantly a ton of crawfish. Hot and spicy boiled crawfish with new potatoes and corn will be the main attraction, served up by Biloxi’s own Quality Poultry and Seafood. Don't forget to bring your appetite, folks.
And speaking of crawfish, don't miss out on Saturday's Crawfish Cook-Off! With 30 teams competing for three cash prizes, get your fill and sample the best of the best, then vote for your favorite. The People's Choice will be awarded a cash prize! Gates open at 1:00pm, and there is an additional fee to taste test.
