2013 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. It will be held May 3-5 2013. The Executive Director, Sandy Price told us what kind of planning and the overall economical impact this highly successful Festival has in our area.
Sandy has been a volunteer for the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival in Fernandina Beach, Florida since 1991. She has served as the festival as secretary, treasurer, committee director and Festival Chairman and in 2000, she accepted the role of Executive Director.
According to Sandy there are six major components to the Festival: 1) the Food Booths, 2) Fine Arts & Crafts,
