The St. Paul's Seafood Festival Celebrates It's 32nd Year In Pass Christian

At the St. Paul's Seafood Festival, there is one thing you are sure to find plenty of rides, rides and more rides.

"The kids love the rides.  My kids have been riding the rides for about an hour now," says Jeanne Baxter of Bay St. Louis.  

The savory smell of well seasoned seafood platters kept people lined up to get their fill. I'm enjoying the good seafood they always have," says Pass Christian resident Steve Malley.

"The main thing we've been doing is just visiting with friends and just trying some of the delicious food and drinks here," says Brandi Williams, Pass Christian.

For Christie Malley, not only was it a special day because of the prizes she won, she had another reason to celebrate. Malley celebrated her fifth birthday as the St. Paul's Seafood Festival celebrated it's 32nd year of bringing the coast together for good times and a good cause.

The money raised from this weekend's events will help fund the St. Vincent De Paul School currently under construction.  St. Thomas in Long Beach and St. Paul's in Pass Christian have combined to form the new school being rebuilt in Pass Christian.

"We work hard, and we come together to do it for the kids," says Anne Tucker, event organizer.  

"It's just nice that the city can come together again and have something fun to look forward to. Something that's a family activity and a fun event," says Williams.

As soulful music fills the air in Pass Christian, more dancing and celebrating is sure to come at this community classic.

The festival will run Saturday from noon to midnight and Sunday from noon to 6.  It's located on 140 East Beach Boulevard in the Pass.
