Summer Seafood Festivals

Every year, we have two great Seafood Festivals in Algarve´s Barlavento: One in Faro, and another one in Olhão city. The picture above is a part of 2008 Olhão´s Seafood Festival flier.
Olhão´s Seafood Festival last one week and each day there´s a different music concert. In this festival you can find different seafoods, drinks, regional sweets, handmade crafts and live music. My favorite festival is Olhão´s, the city known for it´s fresh fish and seafood.
Olhão´ festival started on 11th August and it will finish on 16th. The last time I went there, two years ago, the entrance cost was 10.00 Euros per person and included a small plate of boiled shrimps and two drinks. The entrance ticket doesn´t include dinner, food and drink is paid separately, but you do get a cup as souvenir and get to see the music concert for free.
