RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) – The Ogeechee Seafood Festival attracted hundreds of people this weekend with its award winning food, games and attractions.
The festival has been operating out of Richmond Hill for more than 20 years and features everything from fried fish to rides that make your head spin.
Festival goers can also expect 50 arts and crafts booths, a showcase of local non-profits, and business booths highlighting local businesses.
Live music happens every night of the festival including today until 3 p.m.
While the event has gotten rather large it continues to be run almost entirely by an all volunteer-committee.
"It really puts Richmond Hill on the map, it also helps our local non-profits, this is a great fundraiser for them," explained Brianna Yontz, the executive director of Bryan county Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce, "so it gives an opportunity to raise funds for their non-profit and all of that of course goes back to helping people in Bryan county," said Yontz.
This year for the first time ever tickets were available for purchase online.
If you didn't buy them online this year keep in mind for next year that you pay a discounted price and get to skip the lines.
