All a part of this weekend's first annual scallop festival in Crystal River. This is a family affair if anyone has children. They are welcome and you can bring guest. Take a look at Saturday’s turnout and what locals are saying about the event. Note from Lisa Yeater from 2018 The idea of the scallop festival came to life when a wife and husband realized there were festivals all across Florida for different things, but none for scallops. Lisa Yeater co-coordinated the festival with her husband she explained: "we live here in Crystal River and we noticed there was no scallop festival and we know scallops bring a huge influx to the economy so we wanted to celebrate the scallop season and give our visitors something to do." Laura Lou Fitzpatrick owns a small business in Crystal River and was a vendor during the festival who said: "we have a lot of tourism that comes in for scallop season from July until I think September and it brings a lot of tourism here." Lisa said, "It’s been great the turnout has been amazing and we're thrilled lots of vendors and lots of people. Who can't be happy with this event?" We can’t wait until 2019, See you.
