Kids Activities

As in year’s past, we plan to offer exciting and interactive fun activities for children of all ages.  Do you want to know what it takes to put fresh seafood on the table? Come visit us at the Festival for a baiting demo, a fish display, a touch tank, watch a commercial net being made and much, much more. We then invite you to taste our work at our delicious BBQ Albacore booth.

The “Hawaiian Shirt” Contest

Come on and show off that daring Hawaiian shirt that you have hidden away in the back of your closet. Dare to bear your wild side and wear your favorite Hawaiian shirt and let our audience at the Festival decide which ones will be awarded fun prizes in a variety of fun categories!


Giovanni’s Fish Market Presents the “Down the Hatch” Oyster Eating Contest

Shuck and slurp in this highly anticipated timed event. Giovanni provides the freshest oysters as well as live commentary as we encourage eager connoisseurs to down the hatch. Those top three that down the most will win great prizes as well as  instant recognition for their efforts.

Skiff Full of Fish

The display skiff of fish was provided courtesy of Central Coast Women for Fisheries, Inc., with the assistance of Morro Bay Commercial Fishermen’s Organization and the Port San Luis Commercial Fishermen’s Association. We hope to offer a skiff full and fish again this year!
