If you're in the mood for a lobster roll so fresh that you can practically smell the ocean, or a heaping plate of mouthwatering fried clams that evoke fond memories of warm summer days at the beach, a visit to the 2013 Working Waterfront Festival will certainly please your palate.
Celebrating its 10th year, the Working Waterfront Festival offers the public a unique opportunity to gain a firsthand understanding of the area's vital commercial fishing industry and taste an array of tantalizing seafood dishes.
The festival will be held rain or shine, Sept. 28-29, at Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 3 and Steamship Pier on the waterfront. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.
"Food is of course a central element of the festival," begins Laura Orleans, festival director. "We try to give people a myriad of experiences to understand all that goes into bringing seafood from the ocean to the plate."
