7th Annual Flying Fish Festival 2014
2014 Information – In celebration of the annual return of Catalina Island’s famous flying fish, Catalina announces the 7th Annual Flying Fish Festival, May 29th – June 1st, a four day festival of family fun.
From May to September every year, the famed flying fish soar out of the Island waters to heights of up to 30 feet and glides for distances as long as ¼ mile. The flying fish visits the Island for only a few months a year and best shows itself at night when lured with lights. It is only fitting that Catalina celebrates their arrival by honoring them as special guests with a four day long weekend of family-fun festivities.
The Flying Fish Festival kicks off on Thursday, May 29th with the Taste Around of Avalon from 5pm– 9pm. It’s a chance to explore some of Avalon’s finest eateries and taste their most delectable menu items – all in one night! On Friday, the culinary experience continues for the week as we celebrate the second annual Restaurant Week, from May 30th – June 5th. Enjoy prix fixe menus at some of Avalon’s favorite restaurants.
