Put on your pirate gear–or just tuck a napkin around your chin.  The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival goes on today, tomorrow May 4 and Sunday May 5 in downtown Fernandina Beach.   The annual crustacean celebration offers plenty to do and plenty to eat at the Amelia riverfront, including shrimp in every possible culinary incarnation, a kids entertainment area, educational exhibits, tours, arts and crafts and live music.  Admission to the street fair and entertainment is all free, but you’ll want to bring a few dollars to splurge on a shrimp feast.
