Fun in the Florida Keys
|March 6, 2013||Posted by Nicole under Events, Seafood|
It’s time for the Marathon Seafood Festival! The festival is a tradition that has been going on for over 30 years. It originally began as a way for local commercial fishermen and their families to gather and enjoy the company and the bountiful seafood treats they had landed.
Now the event has become a family-friendly extravaganza featuring fresh-caught local Keys seafood, cold beverages and live entertainment. There will also be over 200 vendors on hand and plenty of rides and games for the children.
The countdown is on! The festival runs Saturday, March 9 at 10:00 am and closes Sunday, March 10 at 5:00. For more information: www.marathonseafoodfestival.com/pages/home.php.
