I have three top reasons for you to visit New Bedford this weekend :
1. If you love fishing boats
2. If you love fish and seafood
3 If you’ve never been to America’s largest commercial fishing port because really, do you want to be that lame?
The annual Working Working Waterfront Festival brings the fishing industry alive on the pier with demos, food, the opportunity to row a whaling boat and endless options to go aboard working fishing boats.
Here’s the schedule and map online. Admission is FREE.
Join us in New Bedford, America’s largest commercial fishing port, to learn about the men and women who harvest the North Atlantic. Walk the decks of a scalloper, dine on fresh seafood, see fishermen’s contests, and watch a cooking demonstrations. Experience the workings of the industry which brings seafood from the ocean to your plate.
And then there’s another great reason to visit. Sir Eatsalot will be on the pier Sunday at 3 p.m. judging the seafood throwdown 🙂 So be there!
