Blue Crab Festival, Memorial Day... and books!

Blue Crab Festival, which takes place every year on Memorial Day weekend, kicks off today.  We'll be open for the festival. Come see us for great books about U.S. history, fun book-themed gifts, cookbooks, as well as great new and used fiction and children's books.

We love the festival. Good food, live music, and lots of people watching–who wouldn't? It's one of Putnam County and downtown Palatka's big events each year. It lasts from Friday's live band kickoff 'til Monday afternoon.

On Monday, starting at 10 am, a parade and memorial ceremonies will pay tribute to those who died while serving in the United States armed services. 

Live Music, a Random Sample

  • Big Engine will be playing Saturday and Sunday nights, the 23rd and 24th, (but NOT Friday, according to the their facebook page). 
  • The Red River Band from St. Augustine is performing on Saturday, the 23rd and Monday, the 25th. 
  • STB is a Motown style band from Palm Coast. They'll be in town Sunday.
  • Blistur describes themselves as Alt Metal/Rock/Experimental on their FB page. They'll be experimenting at Blue Crab on Saturday.
