The 66th Annual Aransas Pass Shrimporee Takes Place This Friday the 13th Weekend

Who is heading to the Texas Gulf Coast this week to Aransas Pass for the 66th Annual Shrimporee?

This morning, on Twitter, we saw the Shrimporee being talked about, with some of the talk mentioning pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp and pepper shrimp.

With shrimp being one of our favorite seafoods, it would seem we might have a weekend full of tasty treats at the Shrimporee.

Shrimporee runs for three days, starting today, Friday the 13th of June, though Sunday the 15th.

Admission is $7 for Adults, $3 for Kids 7 - 12, free for Kids 6 & under. A Three Day Pass is $12. Senior over 65 and Active Military are $3.

Hours are Friday 6pm til Midnight, Saturday 11am til Midnight, Sunday 12pm til 6pm.

The Shrimporee Parade starts up Saturday at 10am.

If you enjoy a good Outhouse Race, that race runs Saturday starting an hour before the parade, a 9am.

At the Shrimporee you will find two stages where you can enjoy live entertainment and dancing all weekend long.

At the Shrimporee you will find Commercial Exhibits, Arts & Crafts, Miss Shrimporee Contest, Shrimp Eating Contest and plenty of activities for kids.

For more information go to the Aransas Pass Shrimporee website.

And, since you will be in the neighborhood, you may also want to visit Port Aransas, where you may get to hear Alma, the Songbird of the Texas Gulf Coast sing.

Will you all be heading to the coast for Shrimporee, with a side trip to Port Aransas?

It is looking unlikely that we will be Shrimporee-ing this year, Alma.
