The 73rd annual Lions Fish Fry arrives this weekend July 15 and 16) with bands and food readily available in Eisenhower Park at the foot of the Pier.
The Fish Fry is Seal Beach’s single longest continuously operating special event , with the first even making its presence known in 1945.
The Lions have been working hard to make this year’s event collaborative with the Centennial of Lions International — and the 78th year for the local Seal Beach Lions club — which happens to be the largest Lions club in North & South America and fifth largest in the world. Only four clubs in India are larger — nearly unbelievable considering how relatively small our community is.
The festivities start on Saturday at 11 a.m. and run to 7 p.m., while Sunday’s activities run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fish Fry co-chairs Mike Haley and Scott Newton have produced great improvements in flow for the food and beverage lines. The club has already sold out of Car Opportunity Drawing tickets for the Subaru Crosstrek as the lead prize, with an iPad, a Pedego electric bike and other key gifts for the additional opportunity drawing.
Attendance as always is free, and there is band entertainment, and a continuous merchant opportunity drawing, sponsored by the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce. We hope you will buy some food and drink (please don’t bring your own) and enjoy the event. This year has a great line up of bands. All may be found on our website at sealbeachlions.org.
