The Fulton Volunteer Fire Department is pulling out all the stops in preparation for the Annual Fulton Oysterfest. The 2013 festival is scheduled for Thursday, March 7th – Sunday, March 10th, on the waterfront in Fulton, Texas. With over 36,000 visitors in 2011, it was the most successful festival in Oysterfest history.
Oysterfest officials have been working with seafood sources along the Texas Gulf Coast to locate the freshest oysters and other seafood for the event as well as the most popular entertainment. Each year’s celebration is a labor of love for the Fulton Volunteer Fire Dept. Over the past 32 years, they have used funds from the festival to purchase equipment. Money raised this year will be saved toward a new fire station. Oysterfest proceeds are the major source of funding for life-saving and fire fighting equipment in the community. Come join us in Fulton for a fun-filled weekend!
