Seafoodfest 2016

HOUGHTON — Lobster is always the star of Seafoodfest.

Meet Dinner: these fresh lobsters are the coveted delicacy of the Houghton Rotary Seafoodfest. It’s a two day fundraiser that features a wide variety of seafood and other delicious menu choices…plus games and live entertainment. All signs point to what good be one of the best festivals yet.

Seafoodfest Chair Eli Karttunen said, “The weather this weekend is really going to help us out. Folks enjoy coming out when the weather’s nice and we should have great temperatures and abundant sunshine all weekend long, so we’re looking forward to some big crowds and a lot of happy guests.”

Not only can you come down and get a great meal, but all the proceeds go to support the Houghton Rotary.

Karttunen said, “Well, the Rotary does a lot for our community, especially looking at the park here. We’ve put a lot of money into the infrastructure down here. We support a lot of non–profit organizations. Just you name it, the Rotary supported it here in the Keweenaw.”

Seafoodfest runs in conjunction with Bridgefest – which is also now underway – so there’s plenty to do and eat this weekend.
