Tonight was one of my favorite events here on the South Plains. "The Ragin' Cajun" 2013 that benefits the fine athletes of the Special Olympics.

2013 marks the 24th year that the The Ragin' Cajun has offered up piles of crawfish, shrimp, sausage, corn and crab legs. fine local music, even silent and live auctions.

The annual Mardi Gras themed event has been going strong now for 24 years and is a great way for the community to help support local and area Special Olympians while eating great food and celebrating Mardi Gras right here in Lubbock.

I'm ready for next year...
