As your stomachs (and livers) have finally relaxed after the 13th Annual Village Crawfish Festival, the Crawdaddies’ brains have been buzzing planning for 2015!

We wanted to boast that more than 600 people packed the St. Pius X grounds on what turned out to be wonderful night for some good music, good friends and GREAT food!

But the thing we are the most proud of is how everyone came together to support a great cause. Head Start of Shawnee Mission received a check from the Crawdaddies for more than $30,000! The much needed financial support will support their two primary programs; the Early Education Program and the Family Services Program directly benefiting the children and families they serve.

We also wanted to thank FOX4’s Michelle Bogowith, as she carried on our historic, critical, crazy serious tradition of being a perfect Crawfish Queen.

Lastly, but not least, thanks to our great sponsors, as without their help, the crazy crawfish carnival wouldn’t have happened.

Check out all those who sponsored the 2014 festival.
