‘A Taste of Crowley’ getting bigger
By: Howell Dennis
CROWLEY - The Crowley City Hall building was the scene of some fine art, cuisine and music. And for the third straight year it seems the crowds that attend the event have grown.
The event, which highlights the cultural aspects of Crowley and is put on by the Crowley Art Association (CAA), Crowley Main St. and the City of Crowley, included silent auctions for paintings from area artists, food from seven of the finest restaurants in Crowley - Fezzo’s, The Rice City Kitchen, Olde Tyme Cafe, The Town Club, Ruddock’s Bakery, China Dragon and Mommie’s. Musical entertainment was supplied by young Crowley violinist Hunter Lambert and ‘The Get Back Band’ comprised of local attorney Jack Miller, Crowley City Engineer Tim Mader, Chris Trahan and Danny Foreman.
Several local dignitaries were on hand including Crowley Mayor Greg Jones, Mayor Pro-Tem Steven Primeaux, Alderman Jeff Dore, District Judge John Trahan and his wife Crowley City Judge M’elise Trahan.
“It’s nice to see this event growing so fast especially because most of our advertising is done by word of mouth,” said Main St. President Raynell Gilder. “I hope to continue this tradition so people can come out and enjoy what Crowley has to offer.”
