Central Oregonians enjoy parade, all-day food trucks and music as Culver Crawdad Festival returns

(Update: Adding video, comments from the festival)

CULVER, Ore. (KTVZ)-- The Culver Crawdad Festival returned on Saturday after a two-year hiatus. It's a family-friendly event that was back and better than ever.

Central Oregonians got to celebrate the end of summer with a parade, all-day food trucks, craft and art vendors, beer garden, and performances. People will also get to eat Billy Chinook crawfish.

"It's going to be great," Mariah Larson, a cook for the Crawdad Festival said Saturday. "I'm really looking forward to it. We are new at this, so we're going to work out the kinks. We're going to enjoy some great food and we're going to have a good time." 

  At the crawdad booth, Larson had the help of volunteers and 10 family members. She said instead of a backyard cookout, they were bringing it to the whole community. The goal was to serve about 800 people.
