35th annual Destin Seafood Fest is almost here

Published: Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 09:47 AM.

As for the logistics, there will be three shuttle stops running throughout the festival — Heron Harbor, HarborWalk Village and Fisherman's Wharf. A free shuttle will be running from the side parking lot at Lively Cinema 10 in the Downtown Destin Shopping Center.

With the festival a week out, Eller said there are still opportunities available for those who want to be a volunteer. Interested persons can contact volunteer coordinator Lisa Firth at destindsf@yahoo.com. There are still slots available for local businesses or individuals to come on board as Power Partners for the Seafood Festival. For a $100 donation that will help cover the cost of the festival's power, Power Partners will have their names on signs throughout the festival grounds.

As a rich Destin tradition, Eller told The Log he is ready to see the festival come to life.

"This is for the locals and visitors alike," he said. "We want to promote the beautiful harbor, the fishermen and the community. For us fishermen, this is a source of pride."
