mcclellanville-shrimp-festival-boatThis will be the third year I’ve covered the Lowcountry Shrimp Festival on my blog, so it’s starting to become old hat.  This year my wife’s parents came down to enjoy the festivities though, so I’ve included a small portion of the picture that my mother-in-law took while enjoying the festival and the blessing of the fleet.
This was the 33rd year of the annual event, which includes vendors, games, silent auction, live music, dancing, and of course seafood.    Overall, it was a great day for kids of all ages, except for a brief shower right in the middle of the blessing of the fleet.  The Lowcountry Shrimp Festival is organized by and profits Archibald Rutledge Academy.  Both these new websites are courtesy of MCVL.net – Lowcountry Blogging Networkcontact me today to get your own website).

Just before the blessing I escaped across to the other side of Jeremy Creek to film the blessing of the fleet from a different perspective.  I’m going to try to incorporate more videos into my posts in the future, but it’s all a learning process.
