Arrrgh! Welcome to Shrimp Fest 2019

The traditional Thursday evening Pirate Parade in Fernandina Beach kicked off the 56th annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival with pirates (of course), mermaids, bands, clubs, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and families ready to party, play, and eat shrimp.
