The event was first held in 1987 as a way to show support to the local shrimpers. As you probably know, the festival has grown quite a bit over the last 26 years.
This year, attendees can expect a boat parade, the ceremonial blessing of the fleet, seafood samples from local restaurants, live music, an arts and crafts show, shag dancing, shrimp-eating contests, and more.
The festival starts at 11:30 am and goes until 6 pm. Parking and admission are both FREE.
