The Weekend Round Up: Crawfest and En Plein Air

Join us at Community Bank's Downtown Crawfest on Saturday, April 23rd from 11am- 3pm! Crawfest is a longstanding tradition that welcomes warm spring weather and the tasty delight of seasoned crawfish.

It's one of our favorite events since it's hosted along Front Street in front of Laurel Mercantile Co., so be sure to stop by! Enjoy the finest taste of the south with a variety of flavorful crawfish and assorted sides with your ticket purchase. Observe the crawfish contest and look out for a surprise judge appearance. Learn more here!

If you're not much into Crawfish, spend the day in Laurel and paint the town! Join likeminded artists of all levels and experiences while painting small town scenes across Downtown. Organized by Pinehurst Rathskeller, this event is highly anticipated event for artists all across the south.

The best part is that the proceeds go directly to the Domestic Abuse Family Shelter in Laurel. Every person who donates, participates in the event and/or volunteers makes a huge difference.
