Ballard Seafood Fest
July 13-14 2013 - www.seafoodfest.org
No one cooks seafood better
Ballard is known as a Scandinavian fishing community. Fishermen also know how to cook seafood. The Ballard Chamber of Commerce was wise when they thought of an annual event that fit the community - Ballard Seafood Fest.
Now those of you who know the Scandinavians, know they are a crazy lot and they like to have fun. If there is a contest to be had, it'll be here. The longest-running contest is the "Lutefisk Eating Contest" - yummm. But every year they have several contests so check out their website at www.SeafoodFest.org
The Ballard Seafood Fest started as a two-hour barbecue event in 1965 or 1971 or 1974? No one seems to remember. : ) Now that’s a heck of a party. It is grown from a two-hour, 10 booth event to two action-packed days with hundreds of booths, great music and you guessed it, out of this world mouthwatering seafood.
