The two-day event drew thouands of crowds to Rockefeller Gardens.
Crab legs, crawfish and lobster tails filled the plates of local residents attending the sixth-annual Ormond Beach Riverfest Seafood Festival.
The two-day community event celebrating all things water, drew nearly 10,000 residents to Rockefeller Park Nov. 15 and 16. Hosted by Ormond Beach MainStreet, Riverfest included live music, platoon boat rides, an interactive kids zone, cooking demonstrations, a public art project, a rubber duck race — and plenty to eat.
“We’ve been here since they started doing it,” Joe Sroufe of Florida Super Grouper said. “We’ve lived in Ormond for about 30 years. We used to have a restaurant up in Holly Hill but this is more fun. We get to meet so many different people.”
Students from the Seabreeze High School Drafting Program helped create a public art project to hang in city hall.
“We’re sponsored by Bill Partington’s AHC Safe and Lock,” Tommy Walburg, 15, said. “All the kids draw whatever they want on the locks and we hang them on this fence. It’s kind of a replica of that love lock bridge in Paris.”
