Do you love crawfish? Do you love the Kentucky Derby? Do you love Mexican food?

Devour authentic all-you-can-eat Cajun-style crawdaddies driven fresh from the bayou by an Authentic Cajun in his Ford F150 and cooked on-site alongside savory Mexican food while enjoying the Derby among friends.

Tickets are $25 per adult (kids are free) and all proceeds benefit FODAC: A non-profit committed to providing durable medical equipment at little or no cost to adults and children with injuries and disabilities.
