Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
Amelia Island recalls its past by Barbara Gavan staff writer, Jacksonville.com As people from Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia come to Amelia Island for the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival this weekend, they know one thing: There will be plenty of shrimp to eat. But what about the other part of the festival name? Why is it called the Isle of Eight Flags? A history lesson is available at the Amelia Island Museum of History. We invite you to join us April 28th through May 1st 2016 to visit Amelia Island and experience the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.
