Shrimp Fest Kicks off the Chesapeake Jubilee

The Kiwanis Club of Chesapeake kicked off Chesapeake Jubilee with its annual Shrimp Fest at the city park. Attendees got to enjoy a bounty of fresh shrimp, grooved to live music, rode carnival rides and watched the fireworks to start up the Jubilee's four days of fun and entertainment.
