Labor Day 2012 Kingsland Catfish Festival

The annual Labor Day Catfish Festival in Kingsland, Georgia, attracts a huge crowd of over 65,000 people over three days.

This festival celebrates catfish, and you just have to taste the yummy catfish served at this event.  The catfish is prepared according to a secret recipe that has been used for years.  About 10,000 pounds of farm-raised catfish is prepared for the festival, so you know that this is a popular dish at the event. The catfish go on sale at 12:00 noon on Saturday and Sunday and 11:00 a.m. on Labor Day.  Other menu items include the famous deep-fried onion blossoms, oriental fare, barbecue, and homemade ice cream.
