Feeling guilty after grubbing on seafood never felt this good.
The seventh annual Sarasota Seafood & Music Festival brought food, music & festivities to JD Hamel Park on Jan. 27-29.
“We have a lot of national and local talent and 400 feet of food,” said organizer Bill Kinney, who has been in charge of the event for the past 10 years.
Attendees gathered throughout the JD Hamel Park and walked through the aromas of seasoned seafood. The wide variety of food vendors gave attendees many choices to delight their seafood craving.
“One of the things that people come down to Florida is that they want to taste seafood,” Kinney said. “When they (the tourists) come down, that is what they are looking for. They are looking for local culinary dishes.”
Live musical performances set the ambiance for the community to listen as they enjoyed their meals and drinks.
