Westport welcomes hundreds to seafood festival, Corvette show

Even the overflow lots in Westport were filling up by noon Saturday as hundreds descended on the busy port for the annual seafood festival, Corvette show and the ongoing salmon, rockfish and tuna fishing.

About 140 Corvettes, from classics to the newer models, lined Westhaven Drive, drawing compliments from the hundreds of visitors, who walked several closed-off blocks along the marina under cloudy skies to see the show.

At the Westport Maritime Museum, lines stretching across the museum grounds started forming well before the seafood festival started serving up oysters, salmon, white fish and all the trimmings at noon.

Local craft vendors dotted the museum grounds as well, selling a variety of handcrafted art, clothing and other items. Local nonprofit commercial fishing group WeFish drew a lot of attention with their hands-on display booth featuring the many types of fish found right off the coast, set up at the base of the steps to the museum itself.

Local band “All In” performed for the seafood fans, who numbered into the hundreds. Throughout Westport, the ice cream and saltwater taffy was selling at a brisk pace and the restaurants were doing steady business as well.
