POMPANO SEAFOOD FESTIVAL BATTLES THE ELEMENTS
Photos by Jon Frangipane
Arrived at the new festival site, just north of Atlantic Boulevard on A1-A, around 5 pm on Friday. A bad weather report for the weekend prompted me to get an early start for photos. The grounds were fairly full already, but I felt this was going to be a short session.
The new festival layout seemed somewhat improved, but it took a little exploring to find all the vendors that were spread about the beach considerably. As the food began cooking, the aroma alone made the offerings hard to resist.
Shortly after 7 pm the rains came in torrents and basically the evening came to an abrupt end. I had made a good choice by getting there early. The weatherman called for the same over the weekend, unfortunately for the vendors.
