Seafood Festival appetizer: Organizers, Tipsy Turtle team up for pre-festival party

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.

If you are a fan of the Seafood Festival’s t-shirts, Eller says you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to pick one up early, as they had sold through about two-thirds of their shirts by Saturday last year.

The Meet & Greet pre-party will be held Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. at the Tipsy Turtle, which is located on the boardwalk immediately east of Galati Yacht Sales and west of Dewey Destin’s.

“We thought before all of the craziness of the Seafood Festival and the Fishing Rodeo, it would good to have everyone meet the staff and enjoy this community event,” Eller said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
