If you are a seafood fanatic, like myself, and attended the Coconut Grove Seafood Festival that was held at the Miami Marine Stadium…you were in seafood heaven! This seafood affair was advertised as come “rain or shine,” and that clause was put to the test as the South Florida’s wind and rain crashed the party but not the spirits (and long lines) of seafood lovers.
Patrons enjoyed the view and breeze off the bay, while moving to the Caribbean vibes of the Bootleg Rock Band blasting from the Sound Stage. The Echo Discovery Zone in partnership with the Celebration of the Sea Foundation was designated for children under 12 (who were admitted into the festival for FREE) to enjoy the day as well. Kiddies were able to enjoy free rides, face painting, and inflatable rides.
The countless vendors preparing seafood served up huge lobsters cooked every way imaginable, as well as crabs, seafood paella, shrimp, and raw oysters to name of few. The “Kitchen Lab” was also available to offer a close look at how some of the best chef’s in South Florida prepare their favorite seafood dishes.
This family event was the perfect way to enjoy and experience what Coconut Grove has to offer . I can’t wait to partner up with BigMouthGirlz again to attend next year’s event, and I’ll make sure not to have such a big breakfast! lol
