The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Mill Point Park to Carousel Park along the river walkway.

Purchase crab, oysters, shrimp and more from the best seafood vendors in the 757. There will be a variety of vendors at the festival, selling items like art, jewelry, handmade soap and more.

The whole family can enjoy nautical-themed games with prizes at the children’s corner and groove to live music. You can even test out your fishing skills at the catch-and-release activity station hosted by Bass Pro Shop.
