Oistins Fish Festival climaxes
THE CRITICISMS OF the annual Oistins Fish Festival have not fallen on deaf ears.
Deputy chairman of the organising committee, Dan Carter, is assuring all stakeholders that their suggestions would be considered.
The 38th edition of Fish Festival concluded Monday night with the Fish Boning and Dolphin Skinning and Greasy Pole competitions which drew hundreds of spectators to the boatyard to cheer on their favourites and just enjoy the level of skill demonstrated.
Tyrone “Dolphin” Shorey added an 11th title to his name by winning the Dolphin Skinning Competition and taking the $700 first prize. Sheena Williams also ended up in winner’s row as the 2015 fish boning champ. She took home the $1 000 prize for her efforts.
It is understood that the police halted the Greasy Pole Competition because members of the two rivalling teams became aggressive. (YB)
