Adopt a Shrimp and watch him race

Highly trained and motivated rubber shrimp will mount their inner tubes and take to the water on October 3 as the Sea Island Rotary Club presents the 7th Annual Charity Shrimp Race at the Beaufort Shrimp Festival at 3 p.m.

The race begins around 3 p.m. when 5,000 rubber shrimp wearing inner tubes are released from the nets of an authentic shrimp trawler into the Beaufort River. The shrimp float along in tidal current to the finish line. Each shrimp wears a unique number corresponding to one of the numbers on a purchased adoption ticket. The shrimp have been training all summer and are anxiously awaiting the chance at being the first across the finish line. The winning shrimp wins $2,000 for the holder of the ticket that matches the unique number on that shrimp. The second place finish wins $1,000, third place wins $750, fourth place wins $500, fifth place wins $250 and 6th through 10th places each win $100.
