Seafood Festival Contest!

Posted by Vanessa Vander Valk

buoys.jpgBeautiful St. Andrews is hosting another amazing Bay of Fundy Seafood Festival from Friday, June 5th through Sunday the 7th. You could be there! We have a truly amazing prize package to give away. It includes:

  • 2 nights accommodation at the Algonquin Resort
  • 2 tickets to the Lobster-roll-pallooza
  • 2 tickets to the Seafood Chowder Competition
  • 2 passes to Kingsbrae Garden
  • 2 tickets to the Sea to Plate Dinner at the Algonquin

  • 2 Lobster Lattes from Honeybeans Coffee, Tea and Treats
  • $30 gift certificate from the BIA to be spent at the Water Street Bazaar
  • 2 passes to the Fundy Discovery Aquarium
  • $25 gift certificate from the Kennedy Inn

That's a darn impressive package, worth more than $800! Here's how you enter - tell us a seafood story. Now, we're not particular. It could be a story about an afternoon spent fishing with someone special. It could be a story about discovering the world's greatest lobster roll while on a Sunday drive. It could be about the best feed of mussels you ever ate. Whatever the story, we want to hear it. Call it in to our talkback line at 1-855-744-3862, or email it to shiftnb@cbc.ca. The deadline to enter is Friday, May 29th at noon. We'll draw the winning entry from all the stories we receive on Friday's show. Our winner and a guest will be off to St. Andrews for the Seafood Festival June 5 - 7!
