Seafood Festival Kicks Off This Evening In Morehead City

It's the second largest festival in the state, and it's happening this weekend right here in Eastern Carolina.

The 23rd annual North Carolina Seafood Festival kicks off Friday evening in Morehead City. Since 1987, the festival has raised over $1.8 million for non-profit groups in Carteret County.

The festival helps promote the social and economic impact of the seafood industry on the state, educate the public about the importance of the seafood industry, and boost tourism and recreation here in East Carolina.

The festival kicks off at 5:00 p.m. Friday. On Saturday events start at 10:00 a.m. and then on Sunday at 11:00 a.m.

WITN News will be live throughout this weekend down on the waterfront, so make sure to stop by our booth and say hello!

    I was there Saturday evening from 8:00 to 11:00. I was behind the Bumpercars and these 2 men just start pounding each other. I was really scared they were coming toward me!!!I walk by to see what happened and them 2 men were drunk and just started fighting but they were to stupid enough to know that they hita little girl about 7. i called paramedics. Luckly we were near a hospital. But i was concerned that i didn't see police there. By the time the police got there the people had already ran away from the location.

    It's a great thing for that area to bring money in, but I wonder how much local seafood is really being used. The commercial fisherman have drastically dwindled in numbers on the coast. Seafood flown in from other areas around the US and abroad, just doesn't seem so appealing. Keep it local in NC.
