Join us for live Zydeco music and the party of the year in Bedford! Just as last year the band, Zydeco Crazy, not only gives us great sound, but instructs in Cajun dancing as well. Once again we will have tons of crawfish to be steamed, mounds of mouthwatering gumbo, delicious red beans and rice and my "all-time favorite" -- crawfish etouffee for our delight. Beer and wine can be purchased as well as sodas and water. Folks are coming from as far away as Tennessee just to join Bedford in this celebration. - Bower Center for the Arts, 305 North Bridge Street, Bedford - 540-586-4235 - www.bowercenter.org
