    STANHOPE, N.J., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- From a little party of
 70 transplanted Louisianans to a Crawfish Festival for 15,0000 people.
 Break out your dancing shoes and tune up your taste buds for Michael Arnone's
 12th Annual Crawfish Fest Rain or Shine Saturday & Sunday, June 2-3 in
 Stanhope, New Jersey.  This annual festival features the best of Louisiana
 crafts, music and food when the Waterloo Concert Field is transformed into a
 bayou-lover's delight.
     Award-winning New Orleans chefs and native Louisiana musicians transport
 visitors to the Bayou from 10:30 a.m., when the gates open at Waterloo Concert
 Field.  The first band takes the stage at noon and entertainment continues
 until 6:30 p.m.  http://www.Crawfishfest.com
     "The sounds of Zydeco, Cajun, New Orleans R&B, Delta Blues and Funk will
 fill the air," says Arnone.  The festival's multi-Grammy winning lineup
 includes Irma Thomas and the Professionals, Doug Kershaw, Marcia Ball, Boozoo
 Chavis, C.J. Chenier.  We also have Henry Butler, Sonny Landreth, Lil' Band O'
 Gold, Wild Magnolias and Swampadelica.
    Each year Arnone trucks in fifteen thousand pounds of live crawfish to be
 boiled right before your very eyes in his custom-made Crawfish Rig.
     "Your taste buds will think Bayou and say Thank-you when you sample
 chicken and sausage jambalaya, Alligator Sausage, Crawfish bread, Crawfish
 Ettoufee'."  And we have shrimp and oyster po-boys, fried chicken, red beans
 and rice.  Shrimp Creole, fried catfish, shrimp & tasso over Pasta, Boudin and
 more.  Traditional fare including hamburgers, ice cream and smoothies will be
 available for the non-adventurous eaters.  (Each dish is available for $7 or
 less)
     Crafts include alligator heads, African art, posters, T-shirts and a New
 Orleans General Store.  For those who are unable to attend, Andouille, Tasso
 and Alligator sausage are available by mail order on the Festival's website,
