Are you looking to have some fun this Memorial Day weekend? Rain or shine the Flop House will be putting on the 15th Annual Crawfish Festival in College Park on May 29th. This is not something you want to miss!
The Crawfish Festival is a staple every year. It started in 1997 with only 5 people and has since grown to 4,500 attendees in 2010 alone. With the purchase of an admission ticket you receive access to over the 2,000 pounds of crawfish brought in from Louisiana, the bands, and the bars and beer which operate on tips. Due to the alcohol access this is a 21+ only event.
The bands this year include The Supervilans, a foursome reggae/punk-rock band, B-Liminal, a band which combines reggae and rock, Savi Fernandez Band, a blues/funk/reggae fusion, The Burnin Smyrnans, a reggae jam band, and last but not least the DJ duo, Digital x Mantas.
While the party will be rocking this event isn’t only about crawfish and rock-and-roll. A portion of all proceeds will go to the following charities: U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars and Heart to Heart: A Community Care Home. Having a good time never felt so good!
