Now in its 5th year, the most “fulfilling” event of the Shrimp Festival, the Shrimp Eating Championship, will be held on Sunday, March 10 at 1pm in Lynn Hall Park. This fundraiser brings sponsored contestants to the table to see who can eat the most shrimp in 5 minutes. During the contest, the People’s Choice will be decided by the amount of $1 donations collected from the crowd for each contestant. 100% of sponsor fees and donations, like all the rest of Shrimp Festival proceeds, go to support FMB Lions charities. Will local firefighter Joel keep his 2018 crown, or will local businessman Carl, with three previous crowns, regain the title? Or will one of the challengers leave them both in the sand? Will Jay find a prom date? Show up Sunday and see!
