With the 34th Annual Destin Seafood Festival just weeks away, festival organizers invite the community to join them for a pre-party Sept. 22 at the Tipsy Turtle.

“If you love the seafood festival and you love your community, this would be a great way to come out and support the seafood festival, while having a great time,” said Mike Eller, co-chairman of the Destin Charter Boat Association and festival organizer.

As part of the Seafood Festival’s inaugural Meet & Greet, partygoers will have a chance to purchase their official festival t-shirt and posters, meet Miss Destin, Callie Caltz, and have their pictures taken with Sandy the Swordfish, the festival’s official mascot.

Toni Dineen, who won the festival’s poster contest for the past two years, will be on hand to sign the posters that boast her design.

The Destin Charter Boat Association will be holding raffles and giveaways, featuring festival gear and art. Destin Prints will have festival shirts as well.

Local musician J.B. and Friends will be playing live on the docks along the harbor boardwalk, and home-cooked barbeque, boiled shrimp and all the fixings will be on the menu, courtesy of Halperns. The team at Destin Prints will be cooking up the feast with the help of two true Cajuns, Eller said.

“We are offering it up for donations,” Eller told The Log, adding that proceeds support the Destin Seafood Festival.
