CALABASH—When the Calabash Merchants’ Association formed last year, their No. 1 goal was to bring a festival to Calabash.
On Saturday, with about 7,000 people in attendance at the inaugural Calabash Seafood Festival in downtown Calabash, they accomplished their goal.
“One of the very first things we wanted to accomplish was to bring a festival to Calabash,” Michael Abushakra, Calabash Merchants’ Association chairman, said.
“We had an excellent turnout,” he added.
