Memo to crawfish: Easter may be over, but Uptown New Orleans won’t be a safe place to be this weekend, either.

Saturday boasts two major events in which crawfish will be the main attraction:

Lusher Charter School will hold its annual crawfish boil fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. This year’s event had to move from its traditional location at the Willow Street campus to the Fortier campus on Freret Street because of voting in Saturday’s election, and the school website has a map of the new layout at the high school.

Just a few blocks away, Tulane University’s student government will be holding its annual Crawfest, drawing an expected 10,000 to 12,000 students and community members from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. for crawfish, food trucks, and bands including Galactic and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk. Crawfish is free for Tulane students, faculty and staff, and costs $10 for adults and $5 for kids for everyone else. For more information, see the Crawfest website.
