Celebrate the Catfish

Only in the South do we celebrate the catfish … and we’ll celebrate it with a three-day festival that marks its 29th year. In downtown Kingsland, Georgia’s Historic Royal District the catfish is celebrated with its Annual Labor Day Catfish Festival (Saturday,  September 3 – Monday, September 5, 2011). Festivities include a fun run, American arts and crafts, antiques and collectibles, a children’s amusement area, a Labor Day Monday morning Lions Club pancake breakfast, daily free musical entertainment and plenty of catfish as well as other Southern food options. Catfish Festival dinners include catfish, coleslaw, hushpuppies, grits and iced tea for $10.00 or opt for catfish nuggets that include french fries and iced tea for $8.00. Kingsland, Georgia is just west of Interstate 95 north of the Florida/Georgia border and about 40 minutes south of Brunswick, Georgia. For more information on how to you help celebrate the catfish, go to the Kingsland Catfish Festival Facebook page.
