Laurel Main Street welcomed spring with back to back events in April and we can’t thank you enough for your support! All Laurel Main Street events serve to further the purpose of our organization, which is to establish a vibrant commercial district in and around Downtown Laurel, enhance our community and heritage, foster a center of activity and ensure economic stability for the heart of our city. While Touch a Truck didn’t got exactly as planned, we’re so thankful for the exhibitors and attendees who came and enjoyed the morning with us.
The inaugural Community Bank Downtown Crawfest was a smashing success! Crawfest goers were treated to a day of all you care to eat crawfish from our 22 competition teams, plus unique fixins’ such as pineapple and ravioli. The teams went above and beyond to set themselves apart, which made for a fun day for everyone! We were so thankful for the beautiful weather, great music from the Pinebelt Pickers, and copious amounts of crawfish! It was our honor and privilege to partner with the Sertoma Club of Laurel for this event and we look forward to doing it again next year!
Congratulations to the winners of the inaugural Community Bank Downtown Crawfest!
