Shrimp Fest is all about good food, good times, music, crafts and fine art. Sunlight glittered off the Gulf of Mexico during the four days of the 2007 National Shrimp Festival. Organizers said this year may have been the best turnout in the event's history.

While the Shrimp Festival's seafood dishes served up along the boardwalk continued to draw thousands of hungry folks, other attractions also brought in visitors. Some people come every year for tropical and nautical themed art and decorative accessories for both their inland homes and condos at the beach. 

The festival is held each year at Gulf Place, the public beach area in Gulf Shores where Hwy 59 dead-ends at the Beach Hwy.

The poster tent did a big business and the T-shirts sold out.

Ron Arnold, who directs the fine arts booths for the festival, said the Shrimp Festival's reputation as an arts venue is growing.

"We're in the top 20 for the South in fine arts and crafts and 72 in the top 200 nationwide," he said. "We really have some outstanding artists this year."
