Are you a seafood lover? If so, head to Madeira Beach, Florida, for John’s Pass Seafood Festival from October 26th to the 29th! This is the #1 rated festival in Pinellas County, one of the longest running seafood festivals in the country, and best of all, it’s free! In its 36th year, the festival is offering more food, music, competitions, crafts, parking, and longer hours than ever before.
The festival kicks off Thursday at 3:00 PM with classic rock on the main stage and local chef competitions for the best seafood dishes in the county! On Friday evening, don’t miss Tampa Bay’s largest 21 + Halloween block party and costume contest from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Winners could receive up to $1000 in cash and prizes! Bring the kids on Saturday for their own costume contest while you enjoy more amazing music and seafood, or check out the Battle of the Gulf Fishing Tournament. On Sunday, make sure to arrive in time for the World’s Largest Bloody Mary Toast! Other family fun activities you can enjoy throughout the weekend include fiddler crab races, trick-or-treating, art and craft shows, and more seafood cuisine than ever!
