When the weather warms up, the people of Louisiana have one thought on their minds: “It’s time to hit the boil circuit.” You know the circuit. One place has crawfish, another has shrimp, and you can even catch a crab leg or two. If you’re looking for the best shrimp boil in August, you can’t beat the Dularge Volunteer Fire Department’s 2nd Annual Shrimp Boil. It’ll be on Aug. 24 at 1767 Bayou DuLarge Road in Theriot, Louisiana.
The cost is a mere $10 a plate, and that’ll get you everything you could possibly want. You’ll get a pound of boiled shrimp, a sausage, a piece of corn, potatoes, and dip. It’s going to be a yummy day at the fire department.
Come for Lunch or Dinner
Your local firefighters will be manning the cooking stations all day. You can stop by for lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or come for dinner from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Of course, no one will look at you like you’re crazy if you decide to stop by for both. You are a Louisianan, after all, so the desire to chow down on shrimp is in your blood. Get your fill while you can.
