O Entertainment is thrilled to announce the return of the beloved crustacean appreciation festival — the Long Beach Crawfish Festival. The extravaganza is part of the Long Beach Sea Festival, a three month celebration of the southern California experience highlighted in a series of beach, ocean and summer-fun events.
The 16th Annual Long Beach Crawfish Festival will take place Saturday, August 1st from noon to 11:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 2 from noon – 10:00 p.m.
The Long Beach Crawfish Festival serves mouth-watering Cajun Crawfish dinners. Delicious Louisiana-style crawfish prepared to spicy perfection by chefs from Bristol Farms in the world’s largest crawfish steamers. Crawfish feasts include succulent red baby potatoes, buttery corn on the cob and creamy, delectable remoulade dipping sauce.
Dance to incredible live Cajun, Zydeco and New Orleans bands. Also, giant food court, beach bars and a children’s area create the nation’s largest Crawfish Festival experience outside of Louisiana.
Roy Hassett, the founder of O Entertainment, commented: “This festival is about celebrating life! Good food, good friends, good music and good fun! In a down economy, these experiences are even more important as we stay nearer to home and appreciate the natural beauty and bounty we are blessed with here in Southern California.”
The Crawfish Festival takes over Rainbow Lagoon on Shoreline Village Drive. For more information and advance ticket discounts visit www.longbeachcrawfishfestival.com.
