Everything We Ate at Newport on the Levee’s Great Inland Seafood Festival


Some say the mighty Ohio River could never compare to the wonders of the Atlantic Ocean and all its seafood fare.

This four-day festival says otherwise. From Aug. 8-11, visitors enjoyed plenty of fresh seafood as local restaurants brought the coast to the Midwest. There was whole Maine lobsters, oysters on the half-shell, king crab and gator on a stick, plus live music from local bands and items for sale from Flutter-Bye Boutique and The Bluegrass Market.
