The Annual Rosewood Crawfish Festival

Today it was a gorgeous day and we went to the annual Rosewood Crawfish Festival, less than a mile walk away from our house.

It was a nice, efficient little festival with various foods and Bud Light on tap. But of course, I had to try the Crawfish:

I split this 2.5 pound "serving" with Professor X (Paul being allergic and the girl having zero interest to crawfish) and it was just right. It ends up being a lot of work eating these, so by the time I made my way to the end, I felt close to full.  Thankfully there were vendors selling big ice cream cones to top it off.

One of the highlights of the festival was a musical performance by Eve6.  According to the Free Times, Columbia's Crawfish Festival was the 2nd stop on their first tour in years.  Remember "Inside Out"?

Want to put my tender
heart in a blender
watch it spin 'round into a beautiful oblivion

Unfortunately the girl didn't, so we had little gumption to stay.  But it was a great way to spend an afternoon on a gorgeous day.  Definitely looking forward to next year's festival.

it seems like a lot of work to eat those, just for 1 bite of meat. we saw a dead crawfish right outside church last sun. that was random given that our church is not beachfront.
