SEAGULL CALLING EVENT
The 26th Annual Seagull Calling Event is set to take flight on Sunday, May 24th, 2014 at the Port Orchard Waterfront Marina Park. Festivities include the highly anticipated “Seagull” Wings Cook-off, where hundreds of “seagull” wings are created, grilled and served up by both amateur and commercial contestants hoping to win bragging rights for their wing recipes. For the seventh year, judges will sample, deliberate and announce “Whose Wings Reign Supreme!” for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in two categories: amateurs (home cooks and grillers) and commercial (restaurants, caterers, other commercial kitchens). Wings will be distributed to the public for $1 a wing donation and attendees can vote on the People’s Choice.
 
To celebrate the 26th Anniversary of the Seagull Calling Event we have waived “Seagull” Wings Cook-Off Registrations fees for 2014! Check out the Cook-Off info here!
 
The fun doesn’t end there! Beginning at 10am (registrations starts at 9am) the Annual Seagull Calling Event will take place.  This will be the 26th year that contestants young and old, as individuals or in groups, some in costumes-- will take turns on the beach ‘calling the seagulls’. Contestants try to mimic the seagull’s cry and bribe the birds with tortillas, French fries, bread and the judges with candy cookies and sometimes even money, to win various coveted prizes.
 
FATHOMS O’ FUN FESTIVAL is excited to bring the 1st Annual Seagull Splat 5K Run as a new event this year to the Memorial Day Weekend of Events!   A portion of the proceeds will benefit VFW Post 2669 to help Military and Veteran Families.  You can get more information or register early at www.fathomsofun.org  Registration onsite starts at 9am and the race begins at 12:30pm.
