Flea Market or Sea Market?
The phrase "Giant Nautical Flea Market" may conjure an image in your silly mind of huge insects in sexy sailor outfits selling things or... selling themselves. Selling each other? In any case, you've got the wrong idea: That is nonsense -- why would the Guy Harvey-T-shirt-wearing boat people in the area want to watch crazy things like huge parasites singing "In the Navy"? They wouldn't want to mount a beer-battered shrimp like it was a mechanical bull or donkey.
For all the helm-handling, hook-rigging, grouper-sandwich-chowing folk, the Florida Marine Flea Market and Seafood Fest is a three-day event that will feature marine and nautical vendors from all over the country -- it's also a boat show. There will be lots of fishy chow, live island and reggae music, an area for your little guppies, and a beer and wine garden so that the grown fishes out of water don't get too dry. Admission is $7, free for children 12 and under. The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the South Florida Fairgrounds (9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach). Call 954-205-7813, or visit flnauticalfleamarket.com.
