47th St. William Seafood Festival set for Saturday, Sept. 2 in Guntersville

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. — The 47th Annual St. William Seafood Festival is set to take place Saturday, September 2nd.

The St. William Seafood Festival began in 1971 under the leadership of the late Father Patrick Murphy and a few dedicated parishioners. It has continued to be the primary fundraiser for the Catholic parish throughout the years.
