One of our favorite ways to usher in the summer season in Huntsville is to suck on some mudbugs. You know – yabbies, mountain lobsters, crawdads, crayfish, or CRAWFISH! If summer for you means zydeco and the spicy smell of creole seasoning, don’t miss the 9th annual Heads-n-Tails Crawfish Boil at the VBC on May 18th!
