MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The 20th annual Overton Crawfish Festival brought hungry Mid-Southerners to Overton Square on Saturday afternoon.

Festival attendees could purchase all the crawfish they could eat, enjoy live music, and shop around the square.

The festival has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a small parking lot affair to a full-blown party that shuts down Madison Avenue.

"I'm going to be here every year I can, every year I can. It's great," said one participant. "This is Memphis at its finest. So enjoy it."

Every year, the festival features fresh crawfish from Louisiana and Cajun food cooked on the site.
