PLEASURE ISLAND, NC (WECT) - Hundreds of people gathered in Pleasure Island this weekend for the 16th Annual Seafood, Jazz, and Blues Festival.

More than 15 acts performed on the main stage, but some said the real star of the event was the coastal cuisine you can't find anywhere else.

"The foods great they have every kind you can think of and its reasonable prices," said festival participant Karen Verdon.

Not only is the food good, but so is business as dozens of vendors set up their tents.

"The idea that you can just sit anywhere and keep coming and going as you want, great music and great food," said Verdon.
