The Grant Seafood Festival.

The Grant Seafood Festival takes place in Grant, Florida every February. The Grant Seafood Festival grounds are just a brief drive down US1 from Melbourne.  This festival is a huge draw attracting seafood lovers from all over.  It's advisable to get there early and bring a folding lawn chair.  You'll want to stay a while. 

The Grant Seafood Festival is not the kind of event where you dine and dash.  Parking will take a while due to the heavy traffic.  Walking to the festival itself may be a long walk.  Most food items have their own stands, so you'll be waiting in line for each.  You'll want to walk around the art and crafts area.  Finally, you'll want to stay to listen to the bands.

Our advice is to get their early with your lawn chair, and bring plenty of sunscreen.
