Plaquemines Parish Seafood Fest

This weekend the Plaquemines Parish Seafood Festival is under way. Obviously the tone of this year’s festival will probably be a little heavy, as the viability of Gulf seafood is seriously in question. I can hardly believe those words as I write them.

Go, enjoy some seafood, and show the folks of Plaquemines your support. The festival boasts “great seafood, arts and crafts, carnival rides, helicopter rides, a sand-bagging competition, an other competitions throughout the festival.” I’m not sure what a sand-bagging competition is, but I want to win it. Admission is $5 for adults and is free for kids 12 and under. It’s already under way today and continues tomorrow at 11 am.  Festival Grounds, 225 F. Edward Hebert Blvd., Belle Chasse.
