SMAC to Host Annual Crawfish Festival

-

On Friday, the Southern Miss Activities Council (SMAC) will once again host its annual Crawfish Fest.

From 4 to 7 p.m., students can come out to Centennial Green and Weathersby Lawn to enjoy all-you-can-eat crawfish.

According to Lenzie Blake, a senior elementary education major and crawfish festival director, SMAC will also offer attendees delicious seasoned potatoes, corn on the cob, hot dogs, snow cones, Dippin’ Dots ice cream and much more along with the unlimited amount of crawfish.

Students can either purchase a ticket for Crawfish Fest with a meal swipe or if they choose to use dining dollars, cash or a credit card the tickets will be $10. Students can also purchase VIP wristbands in The Fresh, Seymour’s or any of the pods.

Along with the food, SMAC will have many fun activities for students to do throughout the event.  They will have inflatables set up along with a DJ playing music and Ricky Noble, a caricature artist.

My favorite part about Crawfish Fest is seeing all of the students, faculty and staff here at Southern Miss and the community really come out and enjoy an event based on food, music and fun,” Blake said.  Whenever this event rolls around, you can always expect a relaxing, good time as a Golden Eagle family.

SMAC president Gavin Snyder has worked with this event for the past four years.  He began working as a volunteer in the Coca Cola booth and the following year he planned the 2013 Crawfish Fest.

Crawfish Fest has always been an important part of my years here at Southern Miss,” Snyder said.

Snyder said this event is a great addition to the Southern Miss social calendar because it brings all kinds of people from different groups and organizations together for fun and entertainment.

My favorite thing about Crawfish Fest is being able to provide an outlet for students to relax and eat near the end of the school year,” he said.  I also love the opportunity to see people try Crawfish for the first time.”
