Up To 200,000 Expected For NCSF

Morehead City is gearing up for up to 200,000 visitors this weekend for the North Carolina Seafood Festival.

With the 25th anniversary celebration police anticipate more people will be out-- jamming into the waterfront area. They say patience is the name of the game while you're commuting into and around the city this weekend-- plus nearly 45 officers will be on hand.

Lieutenant Renee Hester says, "We have a stationary officer on each corner of each block. Then we have bike patrol- then we have patrol that's on the street- so we have enough officers to cover this event."

Hester says besides an occasional rowdy patron-- the seafood festival has never been a public safety concern.

    I will be going to ECU/UNC game. Should be a blast. Funny, I have lived here most of my life and only been to this thing one time. Was not that impressed at all. Go Pirates.

    I've lived here all my life (ENC) and I've never been to this event. Most people that I've talked to have complained about things too much.
