The mudbugs are taking over Shreveport, Louisiana for the 34th year!

You know that when an event has been going on for over 30 years that they must be doing something right. Well Mudbug Madness has been delighting crawfish-eatin', music-lovin', souther-culture connoisseurs for 34 years now and the madness returns to downtown Shreveport, Louisiana May 25.
