The Crawfish Kings are proudly presenting the 2nd Annual Obion County Crawfish Festival & Kids Day in the Park May 30, 2015
This venture has been an ongoing idea of ours for years. We have partnered with the Obion County Fairgrounds for use of their facilities, and they will be heavily involved in various aspects of the daily activities. Obion County has been in desperate need of events like this for the citizens to enjoy, and we are making this a reality.
The day's events are numerous and will start early on May 30, 2015. Please visit the individual links on the left for more information on the following events: a 5K run and 5K Obstacle Run, Cornhole Tournament, Softball Tournament, and Crawfish Idol. There will also be live bands performing throughout the day. We have also partnered with Pope Concessions, LLC in Greenfield, Tennessee to bring other food options, as well as kid's carnival rides. The event list is still multiplying and will ensure everyone has something fun and exciting to do throughout the day.

Brandy Griffin is the 17 year old daughter or Rusty and Laurie (Garrigan) Griffin of Union City. During Brandy’s freshman year at Obion County Central High School, she noticed a "painless bump" in her sacral area. Soon she was complaining of pain to area and that it was very hard for her to sit down during classes. Brandy has never been a big complainer about anything so her parents knew something was wrong when she started complaining every night with her lower back hurting. They checked the area every night one night it started bruising and her parents couldn’t even touch the area because it was very painful for Brandy.
Her parents called their family physician Dr. Kirk Stone and spoke with his nurse Tessa. Brandy went to see Dr. Stone in his office. Dr. Stone was unsure about Brandy’s condition and referred her to Dr. Jernigan. During this visit, Dr. Jernigan thought this could be a cyst or a boil trying to form from the inside. Surgery would be the only way to know for sure. Facing the first surgery of her life, Brandy was very nervous. She was put at ease somewhat when she realized her mom’s closest friend Tammy Moore would be with her from start to finish during the surgery.
