What could be better than a weekend dedicated to celebrating the “savory, beautiful swimmer” also known as the blue crab!
Memorial Day weekend is upon us. If you are familiar with Palatka, Florida you know all about what Memorial Day means to this small Florida city- The famous Blue Crab Festival! This year celebrates the 24th year of this annual gathering.
The downtown festival is being held May 25-28th and features arts and crafts, helicopter rides, a beauty pageant, seafood cook-off, and live entertainment. On Monday there is a Memorial Day parade and ceremony. And of course there will be plenty of great seafood!
