WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Cape Fear Presbyterian Church held its 6th Annual Cape Fear Shrimp Fest on Saturday.

Honorary Chairs Nikki Bussey and Craig Reck of WECT cut the ribbon to open the festivities. 

Free activities for children and families included a bounce houses for all ages, hair painting, face painting, family fun fair activities and Bible school sign up. 

The highlight of the event is the fresh fried shrimp plates with over 500 pounds of shrimp being cooked on site.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Centre of Redemption, a Wilmington-based safe house that works with victims of human trafficking.
