Get the holidays off to a good start with a bowl of stew. A parade, gospel singing and lots of mouth-watering catfish stew top off the fun at the annual Elgin Catfish Stew. The Blaney Fire Department and some of our local volunteer firemen cook up and serve some of the best catfish stew you will ever eat. Fried catfish and all the fixings will also be available. There will also be a carnival with rides and games for the children. The Catfish Stomp is held annually the first Saturday in December.
