Festival of the Fish in Vermilion Reels in a LucasFilm Theme

Fri 6/15 & Sat 6/16 @ noon-11PM

Sun 6/17 @ noon-6PM

“May the fish be with you” is the tagline for the 2018 Vermilion community festival known as the Festival of the Fish. We hate to throw cold water on that, but reviews of the new Hans Solo movie were pretty lukewarm; it wasn’t a prime catch.

We’re going to pretend none off that last sentenced ever happened. This is the 52nd annual edition of the Festival of the Fish, and it is indeed full of Star Wars references, although the beach-fronting community will have the standbys (from Community Festivals a Long Time Ago in Beachfront Communities Far Far Away.

Expect live music, sandcastle building contests, fireworks, wooden boats, an illuminated Saturday-night boat parade and crazy-watercraft races. There will also be the customary firemens water-hose battle. Gee, you would think light sabers, at least?

Admission is free.
