Vermilion’s Festival of the Fish is one of the largest festivals in the area. Every year the City of Vermilion celebrates the sea on a grand scale with parades, boat parades, races, pageants, contests, food, entertainment, markets and much much more. This is a “don’t-miss” event of the year each Father’s Day Weekend. On Friday young girls vie for the coveted title of princess or queen in one of the largest festival pageants in the county. Dozens of animals walk in the annual pet parade. Kids games take place at the gazebo.
Friday kicks off at noon as the Midway opens with lots of delicious foods and spectacular craft vendors.
