Crab races at Seafair

The hilarious crab races always attracts a crowd at Rockport-Fulton Seafair. Seafair was cancelled last year due to COVID, but came roaring back this year, according to Chairman Karl Hattman (see more photos, contest results, inside).

After a year off due to COVID-19, Rockport-Fulton Seafair came storming back in 2021.

“This year’s Rockport-Fulton Seafair was amazing,” said Chairman Karl Hattman. “The turnout was great, the music was great, the vendors did well, and the crowd (of all ages) had lots of fun. The festival attracted visitors from across Texas and beyond.”

Hattman praised the many people involved in the success of the event.

“It was a great team effort and the volunteers, Chamber staff, and committee deserve many thanks and congratulations on this year’s success,” said Hattman. “It was great to be back on the festival grounds welcoming the crowds.”

He pointed out several local groups that worked hard to help with Seafair, including the Boys and Girls Club of Aransas County, and the Rockport-Fulton High School NJROTC, Spanish Club, and choir.

“These groups receive donations and volunteer hours for their efforts,” said Hattman. “They did an amazing job.”

Work begins soon to start planning next year’s event.

“We are working with the Aransas County Navigation District to ensure that next year’s Seafair will have a carnival back,” said Hattman.
