Five shot, one fatally at Crab Festival...only it wasn't a Crab Festival
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | April 30, 2013 | Barbara Hijek

On Saturday deputies responded to reports of shots fired east of the City of Williston large annual gathering of people labeled as "Crab Festival," according to a news release from the Levy County Sheriff's Office.

Five people were shot, including a 36-year-old man who died.

But it really wasn't a "Crab Festival," even though that's how this annual gathering-- which attracted 10,000 people this year -- is labeled, deputies said.

“The agency also said the “Crab Festival” is actually a series of “Hip Hop” style street parties”

also known as Holder’s homey hangouts.

People were dropping at the Crab Festival like turkeys from a helicopter.

“...Holder’s homey hangouts.”

Is that a new department within HUD?

Cool! Admission to the carnival is free. I’d go if I still lived in Jackson.

What, the festival is for that fake Krab stuff, and consequently if they catch the guy, he gets a fake lethal injection or something?

Why is it that country music concerts have more guns and less shootings than crap-hop concerts?

Maybe a country-style version of Dead Homiez is on the horizon.

WCBJ ABC News-20 in Gainesviile later reported that Devonte Tremaine Ocasi, 19, had been nabbed in Marion County for the shootings.

Each of his names is special.

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

They’ll have to cut the entire scene when he finds out. 4 minutes of continuous bleeping isn’t good TV.

You’re not doin’ it right.
I got my mudbugs right from the folks who caught ‘em and boiled ‘em up. I didn’t realize good those things were. Won’t replace pizza on my list of favorite foods, but I’ll never hesitate to eat ‘em again.

No me oh my oh
with any of it- except Cajun catfish... now that there I could eat agin....
gator and crayfish can go anywhere but in my belly....

and to be fair to the gator and crawdads, I did eat them at a festival/carnival and not some restaurant were they would be prepared with just a little bit more care....
But I have had a seafood marinara dish only once in my life and that was prepared in a restaurant and can not so fondly remember that time too...

That’s funny. Not really too much to preparing crawfish. Catch them, rinse them off, boil a big pot of water, throw in some corn on the cob, new potatoes, spices. When they are almost done throw in the crawfish for a few minutes. Peal, eat and enjoy.

When we lived in Louisiana used to catch them ourselves or buy them by the gunnysack full and cook them in a propane fired cooker in the back yard. Yum yum!
