  • Shrimporee
    Shrimporee is a sprawling shrimp festival that delivers crustaceous creations and zany, shrimp-themed festivities to families seeking fun and flavor. At the HEB Culinary Tent, chefs from across the state hook audiences with seafood-cooking demonstrations. The annual Shrimporee parade is another popular attraction with its gaudy floats and conga lines of flamboyant shrimp, getting underway on Saturday, June 11 at 10 a.m. Throughout the three-day fiesta, Aransas Pass's streets swell with the country crooning of singer Kyle Park and the Tejano serenades of Jay Perez, and an Eagles tribute band resurrects classic songs using magical guitars. Ambitious shrimp munchers take the stage to lay waste to entire crustacean civilizations in the shrimp-eating contest, and men flaunt their gams in the Men's Sexy Legs competition. This Groupon does not cover the cost of food, arts-and-crafts activities, or carnival rides.
