Working The Seafood Festival

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, Florida

As a rule, we eschew festivals and boat shows of all kinds.  An exception is the Marathon Seafood Festival.  The festival is held in the park right next to the marina.   Every year they seek volunteers for various tasks.  We enjoy doing it.  The nice t-shirts identify volunteers and give us free entrance.

This year, we were assigned work at one of the food stands.  Libby took orders and I took money.  Man, I never saw so many lobsters and $20 bills before in my life.  In three hours, I estimate we served 300 people, and I handled perhaps $4000.   We were one of four identical stations in one of a half dozen concession tents.   Lots of food, lots of money, lots of fun.
