Back by popular demand….boiling hot mudbugs. It’s the Pearland Crawfish Festival, this weekend, serving big portions of food, music and the kind of relaxed fun that Texans are used to finding in small towns across the state.

For this one, you don’t have to drive far, just hop down Highway 288 to Discovery Bay Drive.

We’re talking crawfish and Cajun fare, with the blues, zydeco, Texas country and even classic rock raising the rafters on two music stages, and then there’s the armadillo races and last year’s popular Splash Dogs.   Pearland CVB is prepared for even larger crowds this year, adding more of everything.  What I like most about this festival… it benefits the school districts of Pearland, Alvin and Ft Bend as well as the Houston Blues Society.

You can get down with that.
