Other events throughout the day will include a classic car show from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET. Plaques will be awarded to the winners in the categories of best antique car, classic car, muscle, modified and modern along with people’s choice, best of show and a mystery judge’s award.

Plaques will also be presented to the first 50 entries.

The day will also feature a Duck Derby Race, where little ones can “adopt” a plastic duck and watch as the wind blows it across the George Core Lagoon.

The winner will take home prizes galore.

Music on Saturday begins at 11 a.m. ET and will feature Bowen and Bowman, Reed Weddle, King Cotton, Cadillac Willy, the Kevin Jacobs Band and the Sauce Boss, who cooks gumbo on stage while playing blues tunes. 

Gates will open at 11 a.m. ET

Sunday will wrap up the festival with the final Race for the Scallops, this time a paddle board and kayak race around St. Joseph Bay. At George Core Park, the music starts at 1 p.m. ET and will feature local Christian rockers Thirty-Three, followed by Diane Peevy.
