Keller’s Crawfish Krawl is returning for the seventh time on April 12, but this time there will be more crawfish on hand to prevent a repeat of last year’s event when organizers ran out of food.

Terry Thomas of the Old Town Keller Merchants Association presented amendments to fees to City Council last week, adding to the amount of food served at the event. Last year, Thomas said, the event ran out of crawfish by 7:30 p.m. — an hour and a half before the event was scheduled to close.

Council waived the more than $500 in fees for the event, which will include 6,000 pounds of crawfish, 125 gallons of gumbo, 125 gallons of jambalaya and 150 sausage links.

Proceeds will benefit the Old Town Keller Merchants Association, Thomas said.

“We’re dedicated to bringing something progressive to Old Town,” Thomas said of the event. “It works. It brings in good people who come to Old Town because they love the crawfish.”
