Each month, ArtWalk is a public event where families and friends gather in downtown Abilene for activities, games, and attractions. This month, it's all about the Cajun Fest.

The Abilene Education Foundation partnered with the organizers of the ArtWalk for its third year to help raise money for scholarships. The money will benefit students of Abilene ISD.

The crawfish boil sold tickets in advanced to help prepare the amount of food. So far, 2,500 lbs of crawfish and 400 lbs of shrimp were gathered from Louisiana. The attendance has increased in the past few years.

Bird Thomas from the Center For Contemporary Arts brought her two friends, Gum and Bo to help promote the event.

Alongside the crawfish boil are the unveiling of Dr. Seuss statues, desserts made by TSTC students, and an exhibit presented by the Wishing Well.
