Tickets are still available for the 10th annual Village Crawfish Festival, a fundraising event hosted by the Secret Order of Crawdaddies. Last year's event attracted 650 hungry people and raised more than $18,000 for Head Start of Shawnee Mission. This year, Head Start and Kansas City Young Audiences will be the beneficiaries of the Cajun-spiced soiree.
And if you don't like crawfish? There's pork barbecue, too.

"We're hoping to have 800 guests this year," Ratliff says. "We're planning to have food for that many."
Tickets for the festival are $40 if purchased in advance, online. Tickets at the gate will cost $50. The ticket price includes food, beverages and the raucous music of Ernest James Zydeco.
