Another accolade up for grabs again this
year is the People’s Choice Award for the
contestant who collects the most money
in donations from the crowd.
“It may be something in the water that
causes the shrimp brought into the Fort
Myers Beach to taste so amazing but you
can be sure that no contestant will go
away hungry,” said event chair Shelby
Peters. “We are in search of ‘celebrity
eaters’ to join in the activities this year
and have issued a challenge to one of Lee
County’s finest county commissioners to
join in the eating contest.”
Also needed are sponsors who, with
their eating contestant will receive pro-
motional inclusion in the festival’s printed
and social media venues as well as par-
ticipate in the parade on Saturday, March
12. Sponsorships are $250, with all pro-
ceeds going to Lions Charities.
Information and applications are avail-
able at eatingcontest@beachshrimpfesti-
val.com and all event information can be
found at BeachShrimpFestival.com.
