Best Decorated Boat contest takes place immediately after the Blessing of the Fleet on Sunday afternoon of the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. This is the opportunity for shrimp boats, commerical fishing boats, recreational boaters, sail boats and even John Boats to compete in a variety of categories for prizes.
This year, the shrimp boat, Island Girl, went all out continuing the theme from Thursday’s parade, Shrimping on Island Time.
All boaters are invited to participate, so mark you calendar now to decorate your boat for the 2012 Shrimp Festival, always held the first weekend in May.
