Bayou Fête XII Washington DC
The largest crawfish boil east of Louisiana all started 12 years ago. Hosting a crawfish boil 1,500 miles from home is extremely expensive. In 2003, due to high costs and poor productions, LSU, ULM, UNO, and NSU, decided to pool our resources so we could host a better quality event for our members. By doing so, and contributing an annual membership start up fee, the big alumni chapters were able to supply the ticket numbers while hosting an event for far less money. Like wise, by joining resources with the larger chapters, the smaller chapters were able to create an official Washington, DC chapter while hosting a boil up here for their alums at a minimum cost. Interesting enough, we were in the red for the first DC LCC boil, barely consuming 300 lbs of crawfish, and unable to float two kegs. Fast forward through 12 highly successful years, along with the addition of Centenary, Tulane, LA Tech, McNeese, Grambling, Southeastern, Loyola, ULL, and Nicholls, we have proudly created the largest crawfish boil east of the Florida Parishes with over 10,000 lbs, 50 kegs of beer, tons of jambalaya, live Louisiana band, and much, much, more.
And thus we spent the day with friends and family eating crawfish and drinking beer while enjoying the Fort Hunt Park!
