Friendly, small town spirit is alive and well in Fulton, TX. Surrounded by Rockport, this town is alive and well, growing and prospering. It boasts the area's (Rockport/Fulton) entertainment district, as well as an active harbor area -- home to shrimpers, oystermen, pleasure boaters, and guide services. Paws and Taws is Fulton's Convention Center and sits on the bank of Aransas Bay.
Once a year, Fulton puts on its party hat and holds Oysterfest, a weekend celebration honoring the bivalve. Held on the first weekend of March the fun includes music, oyster eating and oyster shucking contests, a parade, live music, vendors selling all sorts of "must have" items and just in general good times along the coast. Oh, and the fest ivies are situated right on Fulton Harbor -- what a great venue.
