LUMBERTON, Miss. (WDAM) – Mudbug fans gathered in Lumberton on Saturday for the 9th annual Black Creek Crawfish Festival.
The event has been hosted by the Nettles family, owners of Black Creek Campgrounds, for nearly a decade and has become a staple of the grounds.
“We had 27 different vendors, food vendors, arts and crafts,” said event manager Paul Nettles. “We had two bands come in and play (Saturday) and we cooked over 2,500 pounds of crawfish. We had a great turnout. »
The success of the festival has spawned many other activities at the campground, including an Easter event and a four-week Halloween celebration.
The Nettles family has seen phenomenal growth of the festival over the years and plan to keep the festival under the family name.
“For us, the crawfish festival is all about family,” Nettles said, “bringing families together and having a good time.
“It’s for the local communities, for all of our guests who like to camp, who come from out of state or in-state and stay with us. It’s just a wonderful time for everyone in the community.
