Crab Fest Kicks Off In Bay St. Louis

If you love seafood, Bay St. Louis is the place to be this weekend for the 23rd annual Crab Festival.

More than 6,500 pounds of fresh crabs and 3,000 pounds of gulf shrimp will be cooked and served up over the three day event.

On grounds of Our Lady of the Gulf Church, you'll find 85 vendors selling everything from jewelry to furniture, plus carnival rides for kids of all ages. The event is expected to draw more than 50,000 people.

"The reason that the Crab Fest attracts so many people, from all over the country even and some from out of the country, is the food. There's no doubt about it. The food is made by the parishioners. Nothing is bought in packages and heated up, it's all handmade with the best of products - real butter, real cream," Festival Chairperson Pam Metzler said.

Proceeds from the festival will used to make storm repairs at Our Lady Of The Gulf Church and Holy Trinity Elementary School. Click here for a map to the festival.
