This Saturday, April 23rd, will mark the 28th anniversary of the St. Ann's Seafood Festival! This long-standing Decatur event will again be held on the grounds of Annunciation of the Lord Catholic Church at 3910 Spring Ave. in Decatur.

The culinary offerings will include seafood gumbo, catfish, shrimp pasta salad and hushpuppies. A selection of pastries and ice-cream will also be available.

While the seafood is available in 'to go' containers, current plans are to offer shaded outdoor seating areas for those who want to dine in, taking advantage of the live music from area bands and allowing time to check out the adjacent Big Fish car show.

This will be the inaugural year for the Big Fish car show and will serve to make the Seafood Fest more of a destination event for Decatur and the surrounding areas. The show is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. and will continue through 4 p.m.
