Your Brevard County Public Defender Candidate Attends Seafood Festival

Ever since Ken was a little boy growing up along the banks of the St. Johns River he has loved good Florida seafood.  The Rhoden’s have a long-standing family tradition of holding big shrimp fries for as many as 25 friends and family.  Ken takes pride in every step from purchasing  the freshest Florida Pinks, to cleaning them, dusting them in the secret Rhoden Recipe coating, and frying them to a golden brown.

This past weekend Ken spent 2 days at the Grant Seafood Festival.  Despite the blowing wind the crowds were out and everyone enjoyed the fantastic food, craft show, book sale, and the music.   On Sunday there was a flyover by an interesting experimental aircraft before the Pledge of Allegiance.  Ken ate shrimp, fritters, sweet puppies, and fish and even picked up a used book by Dante for a great price to support the Festival.  CFN News 13 (Channel 13) even borrowed Ken’s tent to help demonstrate how windy it was on Sunday!

Volunteers for the Vote Rhoden team collected ballot petitions and gave out information about your Brevard County Public Defender candidate.    A special shout-out to the United State Veterans for National Security Inc. who were in attendance at the Festival.

All proceeds from the Grant Seafood Festival are put back into the community of Grant. Their projects include a Scholarship Fund, the Grant Library, and the Grant Historical House.  This year the Festival was sponsored by local State Farm agents.
