Crawfish to be celebrated over May Day holiday

Updated: 2017-04-25

Guoyuan town in Changsha county will hold its first crawfish festival over the May Day holiday in the hope of attracting visitors to try the local specialty.

In the lead up to the holiday, Guoyuan Crawfish Breeding Base hosted a fishing competition for families and children to see who could hook the biggest crawfish.

The top three families took home crates of crawfish and a 200-yuan ($29) coupon to use at restaurants on Haoxia Street.

Crawfish from Guoyuan are said to be particularly delicious and have become a brand associated with the town.
