GALVESTON — Young entrepreneurs who were winners of last year’s Lemonade Day event will be special guests at the Rotary Club of Galveston’s fourth annual Crawfish Boil from noon to 4 p.m. April 13 in the Big White Tent behind the Discovery Pyramid at Moody Gardens, 7 Hope Blvd.

Ten youngsters who were category winners from last year will be in their booths selling their lemonade and also will be available to answer questions as to what this Lemonade Day event taught them about entrepreneurship.

“This is a great partnership between the Rotary Club of Galveston and the Galveston Chamber of Commerce,” Co-Chairman Scott Livanec said.

“And this is just another example of two vital organizations working together for the good of our Galveston community,” said Gina Spagnola, president of the Galveston Chamber of Commerce.

Again this year, the Lighthouse Charity Cooking Team will be back — under the direction of Horacene and Dick Daugird — preparing a plate of Cajun-seasoned crawfish, potatoes and fresh corn on the cob. Other menu options include Lighthouse Dogs and red beans and rice.

In addition to fresh lemonade, a variety of beer, soft drinks and bottled water will be available.

The Zydeco Dots will return again this year by popular demand. Also, the Zydeco Dance Contest will be back. The dance contest will culminate with the crowning of the festival’s Zydeco Dance King or Dance Queen.

Crawfish plate tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. There is no admission charge.

Advance crawfish plate tickets are available at the Galveston Chamber of Commerce office, 2228 Mechanic St., Suite No. 1.
