Description

The Blessing of the Fleet & Seafood Festival began in 1987 to support the local shrimping and fishing industry. The festival has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for seafood lovers, featuring a boat parade and blessing of the shrimp and fishing fleet, savory seafood samplings sold by some of Mount Pleasant's best restaurants, live music, an arts and crafts show, shag and shrimp-eating contests, and family-friendly activities. Proceeds benefit the local shrimping industry along with a community-service nonprofit that is selected each year by the planning committee.
