The annual Columbus Pilgrimage Kick-Off Party started the season with a shrimp and crawfish boil held at the old Elks Lodge, due to threatening weather.  Mustache the Band played tunes in the upper level while more than 350 guests enjoyed delicious crawfish and shrimp provided by Huck’s.  The weekend was full of many activities to enjoy, such as the Pilgrimage Half-Marathon and 5K, Tales from the Crypt, Catfish in the Alley, Artisan’s Alley, to name a few.  The 77th Pilgrimage will continue through April 8th.
