Darien, GA, a tiny coastal town in south Georgia, sets the bar high for three-day festivals. A town of less than 2,000 residents offers some of the best festival food and local seafood you can put in your mouth, complimented with all the trimings of arts & crafts, antique cars, a street parade, youth fishing tournament, YMCA sponsored 5-K run, and booths and booths of vendors. The nightly concerts and fireworks display add to the excitment as the entertainment carries a regional audience. This year BLACKHAWK of Nashville and SENSATIONAL SOUNDS OF MOTOWN of Athens, GA, headlined. The final event, of course, is the blessing of the fishing/shrimping fleet. The boats parade up Darien River to the bridge to receive a sprinkling of blessed water, then back and turn around as they parade back out to sea. Blessings ask for a plentiful and safe season for the boat and their crews. A little bit of history and a lot of fun.
