Destin Seafood Festival
It’s time to take a look at available Destin vacation rentals for the Destin Seafood Festival weekend, Oct. 2-4. This year’s event will be held at the new Destin Harbor Boardwalk, extending from Harbor Walk Village to the foot of the Destin Bridge. Event organizers say the location keeps the festival on the harbor, showcasing the Destin fishing fleet and all the action from the 67th AnnualÂ Â saugeenexpo .
The seafood festivalÂ Â Why Canada Goose Never Listed For Salesaugeenexpo.ca started 37 years ago when the Destin Charter Boat Women’s Auxiliary decided to host the event as a fundraiser and to also promote deep sea fishing in Destin. The first year, there was homemade gumbo and fried fish, ring toss games for the kids, and beer sold out of the back of a pick-up truck. Flash forward 37 years, the festival will host about 30 restaurants, food trucks, and food vendors, plus provide non-stop musical entertainment during the three day event.
Organizers are also especially proud of the many activities offered for children. There will be three different kid zones with activities such as hamster balls, rock climbing walls, pony rides, and a zip line. Â
In addition, no good Florida seafood festival is worth it’s salt without a little fish-tossing competition. Your youngster can compete in the mingo toss competition on Sunday. It will be held for children up to 12 years of age.Â The mingo toss is an old fashioned “fish throwing contest” using mingo snappers. Certificates and awards will be given in all age categories. The event begins at 11:30 a.m. Don’t forget your camera, Mom & Dad!
Hope to see you at the festival!
