Tonight! Stuff your face silly with crawfish tonight at the River Market to benefit the Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas. Tickets are $35 at the gate.

See you there.

More info on the jump.

LITTLE ROCK – The Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas will hold a crawfish and
shrimp boil on Tuesday, May 1 at the River Market East Pavilion in Little Rock. Preservation
Crustaceans is an annual event held by the Alliance to raise funds and awareness for places of
historic and cultural significance throughout the state. Preservation Crustaceans begins at
6:30 pm.

“With its fun, quirky name, Preservation Crustaceans has grown from a small, back-yard
gathering to an Arkansas Heritage Month tradition. We encourage people to come out and enjoy
all-you-can-eat crawfish and shrimp, cold beverages and all the fixin’s. Attendees will also have
the chance to learn about the 2012 list of Most Endangered Places, which will be announced on
the morning of May 1,” said Vanessa McKuin, Executive Director of the Historic Preservation
Alliance of Arkansas.

Proceeds from Preservation Crustaceans will benefit the Historic Preservation Alliance
of Arkansas, the only statewide nonprofit organization focused on preserving Arkansas's
architectural and cultural resources. The Alliance's mission is to educate, advocate and assist
preservation efforts across the state.

Tickets are $30 if purchased in advance and $35 if purchased on the day of the event. Visit
PreserveArkansas.org or call Vanessa at 501-372-4757 for more information or to make
reservations.
