This weekend offers a chance to have a great time while doing something wonderful for the community.
One can do both by attending the Marquette Rotary West's 29th annual Seafood Fest at Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette.
Tonight, Wisconsin-based Project Pink will hit the stage, bringing to life the music of rock icons Pink Floyd, including a special light show. This concert is a first for the Seafood Fest, a departure from the typical plans in an effort to give area residents a little something different.
Tickets for Project Pink - with local band Sukker Punch as opening act - will be available at the gate for just $20. Food and beverage tents will be open throughout the concert, so bring along a lawn chair and get ready to be thoroughly entertained this evening.
Saturday will be a traditional Seafood Fest day, with the delectable aroma of seafood wafting through the park and the fabulous sounds of some great bands filling the air. The music starts at noon and that?s when the food both open, with a classic car show kicking off at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Lower Harbor Park. The bands playing Saturday are the Derrell Syria Project; Wednesday Night Music Club; Gator & The River Boys; Shotgun Kelli and State 51; and Vent.
As always, proceeds from Seafood Fest will be used to support a variety of community projects. Through the years, more than $500,000 has been raised through Seafood Fest to help our area and we salute the Rotary Club for its many, many hours of hard work in putting the event together each year.
