Crawfish for Charity
The sixth annual MDA Crawfish Boil and Music Festival is taking place this Saturday, April 4th starting at 4:00 p.m.
The annual event began as just a small get-together in 2004 with only 250 people in attendance and has grown to one of the city's biggest and best crawfish boils. Over 1,000 people came out to Warehouse Live last year to enjoy all-you-can-eat crawfish, free beer and live music from some of Texas' best bands and performers.
This year's crawfish boil will once again take place at Warehouse Live. For $35 ($40 at the door), you can dig into bottomless buckets of all-you-can-eat mudbugs and free beer from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. All of the proceeds from the event -- which also includes a raffle and an auction -- will go to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and Jerry's Kids.
The MDA is a partnership between scientists and local citizens that battles neuromuscular diseases affecting millions of Americans. The proceeds from the MDA Crawfish Boil will specifically benefit families in the Houston and Gulf Coast region who are fighting muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases, so you can rest assured that your ticket money is being well-spent.
After 7:00 p.m., the crawfish will be gone, so come early to cram as many into your maw as possible. But from 7:00 till 10:00 p.m., the headliners will take the main stage at Warehouse Live, including Bleu Edmondson, Kyle Park and Rich O'Toole.
