Thousands of people will head to Fairmont on Saturday for the Fest of Seven Fishes Festival.
Friday night, a fundraiser was held at Heston Farm. Folks who went got to wine and dine while listening to live music. The festival offers traditional Christmas Eve Italian seafood dishes and plenty of other grub. There will be live music and plenty of activities as well.
After the Feast of Seven Fishes book was written, many felt it would be a good idea to hold the festival right in downtown Fairmont. Saturday marks the seventh year it's taken place.
"It's an opportunity to kind of preserve traditional cultures in particular, food ways. We always say you don't have to be Italian to enjoy it. I mean this is just a great lifestyle event for Christmas Eve and so people come here and they get ideas on the foods that they can serve and they just have a great time and see a lot of people, thousands of people maybe that they know," said Robert Tinnel, author and co-founder of the festival.
