Some of the best restaurants and caterers in the state will be serving seafood cooked every way you can imagine this weekend at the 2013 Louisiana Seafood Festival.
The festival, a celebration of the state's seafood heritage and most famous cuisine, is being held at the new City Park Festival grounds along Wisner Blvd. from Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13.
The event features around 40 food vendors, live music all three days, culinary demonstrations from noted chefs and seafood education sessions in a special pavilion, all free for the whole family.
Festival hours on Sunday, the final day, are 11am-7pm.
The Louisiana Seafood Festival is sponsored by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the non-profit Louisiana Hospitality Foundation and its programs.
