This is a huge festival with over 200,000 attending this two day event. It features the tall ships, midway rides, pirate shows, oyster eating and shucking contest, food court, and lots of live stage entertainment. Free parking and free admission, and the profits from many activities including the food court support local charities.
I'm not a big oyster guy. That info may make you wonder "Why in Poseidon's name would you visit the biggest oyster festival on the east coast?" Good...
Lots to do from vendors, food, carnival and other activities. But of course I came for the seafood. Sorry I didn't take pictures just got started back on...
This was one of the biggest and best Festival I have ever been to, and I have been to a lot of them including this one who really outdid themselves this...
