11th Annual Spot Prawn Festival
Spot Prawn Season is nearly upon us! We invite you to come and join us for this years’ festival, which is turning into a great event each and every year. This years’ festival will be taking place on Saturday, May 13th 2017. There will be a prawn boil hosted by local chefs to add a little flavour to the event, so get your tickets before they sell out!
Tickets available at: https://spotprawnfestival.com/tickets/
The boats will be heading out early in the morning and returning around 12:30-1pm to offer live prawns for sale to the public. *Price to be determined*
This festival is a great family fun event, so don’t miss out. Come down and see what all the fuss is about and peruse the booths. We have a ton of stuff for the kids to enjoy along with a little something for the adults, too. Since the event is becoming larger every year, we are recommending that guests leave their furry friends at home for this one.
In the past, there had been no issue with dogs at the festival, but as the event has grown, this is becoming troubling for the event organizers. There is limited space and usually a press of people and kids about, and it is a food preparation event with live seafood present. With all these sights, sounds, and excitement it can be overwhelming for your pooch and they may interfere with the festivities. We want everyone to have a good time, leave the stress behind and enjoy some delicious PRAWNS!
