Locals and guests alike enjoy the Isle of Eight Flags annual Shrimp Festival held the first weekend of May. This year the weather was fantastic with highs in the mid to upper eighties, but with a nice breeze both days to keep the heat and humidity in check. Exhibitors looked about equal to last year and crowds seemed a little larger than last year. There were plenty of food booths with great variety from hot dogs to shrimp pie, lemonade, fries, corn dogs, shaved ice and my personal favorite, funnel cakes. Art came in all varieties from sculptor to painting, glassware, jelwery, pottery, apparel, toys, garden items, antiques, wood carving, whirlygigs, and much more. It was a great two days with several trips back and forth by us and guests to get just the right item from just the right exhibitor. People from all around the US were displaying their creative talents and art forms and it speaks to the diversity and talent of Americans when you see the variety and quality of items displayed. It makes for tough decisions if you enjoy art and creative works. We had plenty of shrimp and other food so we will now be eating small for a few days to make up for it! Hope you can join us next year for this exciting event as pictured below.
