Mudbugs Festival at the State Fairgrounds

JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -

The Mudbugs Festival at the state fairgrounds is all about crawfish- more than 10 thousand pounds of it! But there’s a lot more than seafood to get you in on the fun! The second annual Mudbugs Festival also features live music, and a more than 20 carnival rides!

The festival ride special lets you get on as many rides as you want for $25.

All crawfish will be cooked and served by Chad Horton, the owner of Back Porch in Brandon, at $15 a plate.

And when we’re talking crawfish you know there’s got to be some competition! The festival will also feature crawfish cooking and eating contests, and our very own Patrick Ellis will be one of the judges.

The festival ends on Sunday.
