May 1, 2011 - Blessing of the Fleet | Kemah ~ Gumbo Cook off Photos

It was a full and fun weekend out in the city of Kemah. Friday night kicked off the Kemah Music Festival with rock music by the King Pins and Navigators. Saturday, brought out  cook-off competitors for the 3rd annual Gumbo Seafood Cook off with one a mandatory ingredient; wild caught Texas shrimp. Judging happened Saturday evening, where local celebrities were asked to judge the gumbo, in a blind taste test. Visitors to the festival joined in the judging for the People’s choice award. All the while, Toucan and the Chad Ware band provided some great country music.

Sunday was a perfect day for visitors to line up along the Kemah Boardwalk for the annual Blessing of the Fleet. The Blessing of the Fleet is a tradition each year to start off the fishing season with a blessing in hopes of a safe and profitable fishing season; numerous pleasure craft also joined in on the fun as part of the parade. After the Blessing, the Bill Bellmore and Lone Star bands rounded out the music festival with their Bluegrass, toe tappin tunes.
