We will be serving all the fresh boiled crawfish and trimmings you can eat, along with hot jambalaya and homemade desserts.

In addition to the mouth-watering food you also will have a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize.

Tickets are $100, which covers two people for a night of food, ice-cold beverages and a chance to win $5,000. Second chance insurance is available for an additional $30, which allows your ticket, if drawn within the first 100 tickets, to be placed back in the drawing for a second chance at the grand prize of $5,000. FYI: The door prizes this year are fabulous.

Takeout orders will also be available the night of Crawfish Countdown between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Take-out orders are $35 per person and include “Crawfish and trimmings” only. Orders will be prepared and packaged at the time of the order.

So, y’all, grab your friends and join us for the 35th Annual Crawfish Countdown from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday.

Just a polite reminder, you must be at least 21 years of age to attend this event, and you don’t have to be present to win.

Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the event, from any school office or by going on to our website at
