The annual Crawfish Festival in the Heights took place on March 4 at 411 West 20th Street. Despite an occasional visit from rain drops, everyone including mudbug eaters, volunteers, vendors, and performers enjoyed the activities. The spirit of the 13th annual Crawfish Festival was intact and it continued to provide fun, food, festivities, events, and much more. The festivities got underway with a terrific parade down 19th street. Scott McClelland, President of HEB was the parade Grand Marshall and rode in the famous “HEB 10 items or less” shopping cart.
