Hey friends, hope you had a bash on 33rd Annual John’s Pass Seafood Festival with an electrifying weekend, full of taste bud teasing, ear vibrating diversion and sight pleasing. This year the event had taken place from October 24 to 26, 2014. The event takes place at Historic John’s Pass Village located on most beautiful Madeira Beach, Florida, United States. The highlights of the event includes musical entertainment, art and craft show and luscious seafood. There were delectable grouper sandwiches along with 100+ seafood options.
Some of my special friends paid a visit to that place and were talking about the goodies including food vendors, beer truck, full bar rodeo-style fishing tournament etc. Oh! I missed it all.. They had ultimate time on the Halloween Party and Costume Contest. Nevertheless Best Seafood Competition was the centre of attraction for the tourists as well as the localites. Keeping the spirit of the event, let's make the Korean Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup AKA Champong that is welcome by lot many goodies from the sea.
