Like a woman fudging her birthday, the Tybee Seafood Festival and Carnival turned 37 for the second time this year.
But festival organizers were fibbing in reverse. This year is actually the second time the “37th annual” Tybee Seafood Festival and Carnival has been held.
Richard Adams, who helped put together the event, said it was inspired in part by the Miley Cyrus movie “The Last Song,” which was filmed on T
ybee in 2009. The movie featured a “37th annual” seafood festival and carnival, and Adams said organizers decided seafood and carnival rides would be a great way to draw visitors to the island.
“A Ferris wheel is something that gets you a buzz,” he said.


The event featured carnival rides set up in the Ocean Plaza Beach Resort parking lot starting on Wednesday. The rides were supposed to shut down on Sunday night, but Adams said organizers will decide today whether to extend the carnival through this week.
The seafood festival portion of the event consisted of six Tybee restaurants that sold dishes in booths on the Tybee pier from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.
The event is sponsored by the Tybee Arts Association and the city of Tybee. Adams said that, in an effort to attract more visitors, organizers plan to push the event back next year so that it coincides with spring break.
