People living in South Florida can feel pretty spoiled about having freshwater fish options right at their fingertips … literally. On September 13th, beginning at 11 a.m., Downtown West Palm Beach will host the inaugural Feast of the Sea festival, celebrating Palm Beach County’s incredible culture, community, and of course, seafood.
A Culinary Celebration
At its core, Feast of the Sea is exactly how it sounds. It’s a massive festival of food – seafood to be specific. Located on Flagler Drive, Feast of The Sea will feature more than 35 of Palm Beach County’s best restaurants. Of course that includes Downtown West Palm Beach favorites like E.R. Bradley’s Saloon, Pistache French Bistro, Le Rendez-vous and Ristorante Santucci, whose very own Chef Eugenio Santucci just won the Feast of the Sea Chefs Challenge.
These participating restaurants will be serving up sample-sized seafood dishes, none of which will cost more than $6, taking visitors on a cultural and culinary tour of five unique regions: North America, South America, Europe, the Caribbean, and Asia.
Fun for the Whole Family
Friendly Competition (for cash)
Take the casting competition put on by Future 6 Helping Hand Fund, for example. If you can cast a fishing lure into a bucket floating 60 yards out in the intercoastal waterway, you’ll go home with $10,000. If you and 100 other people are skilled enough to do it, you’ll all go home with $10,000 each!
If an intense relay race is a little more your speed, Feast of the Sea is giving you a chance to go home a winner as well. The Hope Floats Paddle Classic is the first ever paddleboard/outrigger/surf-ski race held on the beautiful West Palm Beach Waterfront. The winner of the Elite 6 mile race will walk away with a $2,000 cash prize (assuming they are still able to walk after it).
Perhaps you’d prefer a more leisurely, traditional backyard game. You should still be able to earn a little extra cash. So grab a partner and enter the $1,000 cash prize cornhole tournament. If you aren’t quite the dynamic duo you expected to be, you can show off your individual beanbag-tossing skills in the long toss competition.
