Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival this weekend

Each year, the first weekend in May brings the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival to Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, birthplace of the modern shrimping industry.  Did you know that more than 80% of the Florida Atlantic shrimp is still harvested in the water here?

Enjoy arts and crafts, food, entertainment, and of course, plenty of shrimp.  The activity is downtown along historic Center Street, and admission is free.
