Zatarain's to Sponsor Shrimp Festival 2012
Zatarain’s will be the presenting sponsor of the National Shrimp Festival, in Gulf Shores, which is entering its 41st year. Zatarain’s will donate products and provide financial support for the event. Festival leaders and Zatarain’s leaders are excited about the partnership which is completely natural, according to Festival Chairman Ron Kutter. “We have New Orleans-style food and with all the Gulf Coast seafood here, it was a perfect fit.” This year, festival officials are considering additional events, said Don McPherson, Chamber Special Events Director. He said one possible event could be a cooking competition among area professional chefs. With Zatarain’s help, this year’s Festival looks to be the biggest celebration yet! So, if you find yourself in the Gulf Shores area from October 11-14th, be sure to stop by and grab a bite.
