On Friday, May 7, head over to BRCC Mid City, Blue Cross Blue Shield or Bayou Plaza and pick up two bags of crawfish, totaling in 6lbs., from two different teams and a 20 oz. Coca-Cola beverage.

Tickets are $25 each and can only be redeemed at the location you select. Each location will host 10 team competitors, and ticket holders can text-to-vote for their favorite team as the People’s Choice winner. All gates will open at 3 p.m. and close at 7 p.m., or when crawfish runs out.
