During the SearchAmelia sponsored Adult Pirate Dress Contest it was announced that we are looking for the funniest Shrimpfest picture of 2012. The idea was born after seeing how far some of these pirates were willing to go, in order to win the Prize money; absolutely hilarious. A video will follow later this week as well as a video of the always entertaining Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream Eating Contest. Come to think of it some of those shots may easily qualify for the Funniest 2012 Shrimp Festival Picture.

In any case, here is what the winning picture will get you:

A Two Night Midweek Stay for Two at the Amelia Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast on South Fletcher Ave. on our dime!

You need to email your selected picture(s) to or before midnight May 15 and the winner will be announced on on Friday May 18.

Oh and if you’d like to maybe find yourself in one of the 300 pictures we ( Amy Kolz, Helmut Albrecht and Han Ramakers – SA took during the Pirate’s Parade, here’s your chance. The music under the video is written and performed by my friend Dick Solberg and the Sun Mountain Band. Enjoy and don’t forget to email us your favorite funny picture.
