There's a lot to enjoy about the North Carolina Seafood Festival...but my favorite part is the food.
If you have ever been to the festival in Morehead City you know there's just about any kind of seafood you would want. My favorites are the Cajun shrimp pitas, seafood spud and the crab cakes. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
Of course you will find all of the other foods you would expect at a fair...deep fried turkey legs, cheesecake on a stick and frozen lemonade, just to mention a few.
But the North Carolina Seafood Festival is about more than just good food. It's about family fun, recognizing the fishing industry and the importance of seafood to eastern North Carolina.
The festival also provides an opportunity for non-profits to raise funds. Since 1987, over 1.8 million dollars has been dispersed among the non-profit groups participating.
The 22nd annual festival is set for this weekend along the Morehead City waterfront. Hope to see you there.
