28 Leaving Louisiana doesn't have to mean leaving crawfish behind. Every spring, LSU Tiger Nation unites from coast to coast to celebrate the love of crawfish, as well as all things purple and gold, in order to raise funds for LSU. With nearly 30 chapter crawfish boils, held April through June, and crowds ranging from a few dozen to several thousand, LSU alumni event take place in cities across the country. Regardless of location and size, chapter crawfish boils mean Tigers not only enjoy hot crawfish, but also have the opportunity to network and meet fellow LSU alumni (and fans) in their respective cities. Whether your travels take you east, west, or to a landmark in-between, you can almost guarantee you'll find an LSU Alumni Association crawfish boil nearby! This year marks a few milestones in the history of chapter crawfish boils. San Diego—home of the largest LSU Alumni Association crawfish boil is celebrating its 30th anniversary and expects nearly 5,000 people to attend. Las Vegas Sin City Tigers are celebrating their 15th anniversary by hosting a party for more than thousand crawdad lovers on historic Freemont Street. These unique "Parties with a Purpose" have become festival-like in nature and continue to grow. Proceeds generated at these events through sales and silent auctions, as well as membership contributions, support scholarships and the independently-funded Alumni Association that operates at no cost to LSU.
