As the summer winds down, many people find themselves looking for something to do with their families. Depending on where you live, the temperatures may already have started to fall, but not so much that you will not be able to enjoy the Shrimp Blast Seafood Festival. If you are still trying to get the most out of your summer, this event might be just what you are looking for. In fact, it may be the best way to wrap up the summer and here are a few reasons why:
A Time for Fun
Doors open at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 7th, at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This is probably going to be the best thing that you do all summer long, especially since there will be no cover charge. Parking is free at the South Hall Garage and is expected to be full, so come early for a good spot. Patrons that arrive before 5:00 p.m. can receive free ice cream and can also register to win tickets to Sesame Street Live. [Learn More Information about the Shrimp Blast Seafood Festival]
What to Expect
The main activity for this fun filled evening is the sampling of a variety of different kinds of seafood (with beer very reasonably priced at $3.00 each). Although parking will be free, the food is not expensive and can be tried from several different vendors operating at the event. Seafood lovers will find that the Shrimp Blast Seafood Festival is a great way for families to get together and enjoy some of their favorite dishes.
Events such as these usually cater for individuals of all ages, so it is no surprise that the children are at the top of everyone’s mind. Your kids can entertain themselves in a variety of inflatable play areas as they meet new friends. They can also have their faces painted to remind them of the special event. Parents, on the other hand, can hang out in front of the stage and enjoy Jeff Whitlow & The Old Barn Band, or the Judge Talford Band.
The Varieties of Food at the Shrimp Blast Seafood Festival
Seafood is the highlight of the event, but what if someone in your group does not like seafood? They are in luck, because the organizers have made certain that there is something for everyone. There will be hamburgers and chicken finger baskets for those who prefer to avoid any kind of seafood.
A True Seafood Experience
If you have been to one of these festivals before, chances are that you already know what to expect and you are simply back for more. The fact remains that many people who continue to participate in this Shrimp Blast Seafood Festival have nothing but good things to say about it and so will you. Grab the family and head down to the Von Braun Center, where the fun never stops and the music and shrimp only gets better as the evening wears on.
