BRINNON — It’ll look a little bit like Louisiana down on the Brinnon bayou today as the ninth annual ShrimpFest gets under way.
ShrimpFest, which runs through Sunday, offers a mix of local seafood and Dixieland music, along with garden tours, a flea market and street dance.
The festival spans both sides of U.S. Highway 101 near this Hood Canal town, home of one of the state’s May shrimp harvesting locations.
During ShrimpFest, food and craft booths will be set up at Johnston Field, just past the Brinnon General Store. Parking will also be available there.
The Quilcene-Brinnon Shellfish Club will cook shrimp for eating, while the Friends of Brinnon — sponsors of ShrimpFest — will be selling locally caught, frozen and packaged shrimp for $12 per pound.
