NC Seafood Festival 2016

NC Seafood Festival 2016

On the last day of the NC Seafood festival this year, we find comfort in being some of the last stragglers. Soaking up all the goodness that is going to the festival with a little less crowds. Especially when you’re traveling with a stroller. We are welcomed with the Flounder Fling. This the first time I witnessed something so strange, yet so entertaining. And this guy to the right was a ham and very good at flinging a fish!

Immediately following this entertainment, my husband and I got down to the important business….FOOD! Which seems to be the running theme to most of my blog posts. But what can I say. North Carolina has some amazing edibles. If anything you should come and do a restaurant crawl. I promise you wouldn’t regret it…or maybe your waist would, but your mouth would love you forever 🙂

Derrick started off with fried oreos and I quickly scuttled down to an amazing seafood chowder, which I discovered you can order online or visit your local Harris Teeter. It was made by Michael’s Seafood ( from Carolina Beach, NC

The music could’t get any better on the last day of the NC Seafood Festival with Chairmen of the Board. Jackie Wilson – (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me)

Other must-sees while at the Seafood Festival are the wine row. Try tons of samples of wine and find your favorite to take home. Also, you can’t leave without strolling through the homemade crafts and finding early Christmas gifts for loved ones. There are also rides…how could I forget? If you have a little daredevil in ya, try a few of the carnival rides and games.

There is something for everyone at the NC Seafood Festival. take advantage of the many activities that take place at various times, including evening concerts. Visit for next year’s shindig.
