    Band was great. Too bad as a group we didn't have a banner or something. I got a late start, was there 2 hours and came back. Loved the starry skies. Saw the milky way, something we don't see in the light skies of Phoenix.
    I hope they can persuade the store owners to stay open past 7. There was nothing to do. Maybe have vendors. They were trying to give away crawdads, they had so many. They spent $5000 bringing in 1000 lbs of Louisana crawdads one of the guys said.

      Oops, mispelled it. Anyway, the band would cost about $700.00 and the DJ about $100.00 and rental of the hall would be about $200.00. We'd have to have 200 people show up. We don't have that many. At $10.00 only 100 people have to pay to make the money to pay the entertainment. However, we could give away two drink tickets with the price of admission. Lots of people don't drink beer so that might work.

    Dance lessons would be nice.

    We did have a big red balloon displayed for people to find us; plus the band always knew where we were sitting. We even had members of the band come out of the Gazebo to play directly in front of us. A few times, James announced we were there, supporting the band.

    The Arizona Crawfish Company really put on a great event. The right place, the right time, and the right people - Please go to their website at www.arizonacrawfishcompany.com and get connected. We need to support businesses that support the culture with which our meet-up group is connected. I could not have been happier with the band ZYDECO Arizona. We've all been friends for many years and it's nice to know that we can make the vision of a full on Zydeco band happen.

    Thank you. BTW - I almost had a 12 Point Elk Buck as a hood ornament on the way home. As it was, we were head to head for about 2 seconds after a long squealing brake on the highway until he JUMPED OVER OUR CAR!!!! A moment I will remember until the end.

    Do we pay at the gate?

    July 30, 2013

    • James B.

      No, there is a website at http://www.arizonacra...­

      July 30, 2013

    • James B.

      I think you may also be able to pay at the gate if it is not sold out - which it might be! Go on the website and ask them. I think Thursday is the cutoff time for pre-sales through the website.

    • James B.

      Thank you - I'm playing in the band, "Zydeco Arizona", and have organized this event. So, you're welcome to put the Meetup Sign on the stage!

      Okay, I can get a red helium balloon, at Fry's, before I meet Helle.

  • Charlie O.

    FYI, there will be a $5 parking fee, at the festival, with the proceeds going to the local Lions Club, FYI.

  • Charlie O.

    Okay, People, the high temp, in Overgaard, next Saturday is supposed to be 79 degrees; while it will be 107 degrees here in the Valley. More of you Zydeco fans might want to still make plans to attend this fun festival; just saying'.

    Annnd, is anyone going to be there to give some lessons? I've never..

    July 30, 2013

    • James B.

      I haven't heard of anyone being there to give lessons yet, but I do know of a number of nice young men who are patient and like to dance Zydeco which will be there. I'll look up that info and get back to you.

    I'm a little unclear on the crawfish part: I presume it's a boil? What's the alottment per person? Hey, I'm a big Cajun bear and I put away some crawfish!

    July 21, 2013

  • Janet B.

    possibly more. I blasting this out to all my zydeco dancing friends woo hoo,

    I may bring more, have to check

    July 22, 2013

  • James B.

    I'm guessing that with any Crawfish festival there's gonna be beau coup crawfish - boiled of course! AND it's gonna be ARIZONA crawfish, took from the canals, creeks, and fishing holes all around Arizona - check it out, you can WIN MONEY for the most crawfish caught!

    July 22, 2013

  • James B.

    This is the real deal - a homegrown Arizona Crawfish Festival - please support this event and there will be more - MUCH MORE!
