The Destin Seafood Festival is a family friendly event on the Destin Harbor. We have 3 separate Kids Zones in the festival with something for kids of all ages.
Kids Fun Zone at East Pass Marina
The East Pass Marina Kids Zone has pony rides, petting zoo, and kids games geared towards younger kids and toddlers. There is a seating tent nearby so that parents can take a break and cool down while the kids play.
Kids Fun Zone at HarborWalk Village
This HarborWalk Kids Fun Zone has Hamster balls, a rock climbing wall and a zip line over the Festival crowds at Harbor Walk. There is a seating tent nearby so that parents and kids can take a break while enjoying the Festival.

Kids Mingo Toss
Sunday on top of the hill at the Royal Melvin Heritage Park, behind the Destin City stage.
On Sunday we host our Annual Mingo Toss contest for kids up to 12 years old. The Mingo Toss is an old fashioned "fish throwing contest" with Mingo snappers. Certificates and awards will be given in all age categories. This is allot of fun and a great photo op for the parents!
