The 5th Annual Waterway Village Zydeco and Crawfish Festival boils up a beaucoup of fun on Saturday, April 20 in Gulf Shores.

There will be arts and crafts vendors and children's activities.

The festivities will kick off at 8 a.m. with the Zydeco and Crawfish Festival 5K benefitting Furrever Homes. The good times will roll all day long as the crawfish pots begin boiling at 10 a.m. and the Zydeco sounds will be grooving until 6 p.m.
