The event begins Friday, May 13 and will run through the weekend.
Powder Springs started this festival just last year and brought in more than 10,000 attendees.
This year, they’re once again partnering with Robin Robert Promotions for this free family-friendly event designed to bring the community together through tasty food, juried arts and crafts, fellowship, and fun.
“We are excited to produce this fantastic festival a second year for the citizens of Powder Springs and the metro Atlanta area,” said Roberts in a released statement. “We look forward to the community coming out for this weekend of food, live entertainment, crafts and fun.”
Powder Springs Mayor Al Thurman hopes to see the same turnout as last year.
“I think it really, to be truthful, put us on the map because it was so well attended, the food was good, and I’m hearing people from outside of the city in other places talking about ‘the Seafood Festival in Powder Springs,’ so that’s how big of an impact it was and how word spread,” he said.
Event Details:Friday, May 13 | 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.Saturday, May 14 | 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.Sunday, May 15 | 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Local food vendors attending the event will carry a variety of seafood and other cuisines from merchants like All Around the World Food Truck, Pork Ur Fork, Forget Me Not Catering, South Fried Catfish Company, Ohana Shaved Ice and more.
Live performances will feature local Atlanta musicians including artists like the Gold Standard Band, American Hope Band, The Georgia Blues Brothers and a Tina Turner tribute artist.
Attendees will also be able to browse and purchase the local arts and crafts from vendors. Children can spend their time in the Kids Zone where fun activities like bounce houses and face painting will be made available.
While this is a family-friendly event, coolers and pets are not allowed.
In addition, general admission and parking are free. Those looking to attend some of the VIP events the festival is hosting - like The Beach Club - you can purchase tickets online. Tickets include preferred seating, a private bar and lawn games.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University baseball team used a dominant performance on the mound, mixed in with a trio of three-run innings to take down rival Pitt, 9-1, on Tuesday night at Wagener Field at Monongalia County Ballpark.
Freshman right-handed pitcher tossed six, no-hit frames for WVU (29-18), while the Mountaineers put three runs on the board in the first, fourth and seventh innings. Major earned the win, his second of the year, while Jonathan Bautista took the loss for Pitt (26-20).
The win secured the Backyard Brawl season series over the Panthers, 2-1.
"He's getting a little better every time out," WVU coach said of Major. "If he continues to get better from here, then he's going to have a really good future (at West Virginia)."
After Major retired UP in order in the top of the first, the Mountaineers struck for three runs to take an early lead. First, sophomore catcher scored a pair with a base hit up the middle, before junior outfielder/left-handed pitcher smacked an RBI double to score another run.
In the fourth, West Virginia doubled the lead with junior outfielder three-run home run to right. The 409-foot blast marked the Powder Springs, Georgia, native's sixth big fly of the year.
Major, meanwhile, put on a dazzling display on the mound. The Mill Hall, Pennsylvania, native didn't allow a hit in six, strong innings. He struck out a career-high eight batters and walked two on 84 pitches.
Pitt didn't record its first hit of the night until a solo homer in the top of the seventh. But sophomore outfielder bumped the WVU lead to 9-1 in the bottom half with the Mountaineers' second three-run bomb of the evening.
Following Major's exit, senior right-hander , freshman right-hander and sophomore right-hander finished the job with an inning each out of the bullpen. In all, the four Mountaineer hurlers combined to allow just two hits on the night.
At the plate, senior outfielder and freshman infielder each enjoyed two-hit nights, while Barry and Scott II led the way with three RBI each. Holbrook added two RBI in the win.
Additionally, Davis stole his 61st career base on Tuesday, moving him into a tie for No. 2 with Brandon White (2017-19) on WVU's all-time list in the category. Scott II also stole a bag, the 60th of his career.
With the victory, WVU has now won 31 of its last 33 midweek, home games in Morgantown. The squad also scored its ninth win over Pitt in its last 11 meetings.
Up next, the Mountaineers hit the road and return to Big 12 Conference play with a three-game series at No. 21 Oklahoma from May 13-15, in Norman. First pitch of Friday night's series opener is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.

POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. — MAPCO Express convenience stores now carry the award-winning Nxt Lvl Hydrogen Water with Quad-C and energy shots, Nxt Lvl parent company Takeover Industries has announced.
The Franklin, Tenn.-based convenience-store chain is celebrating the rollout of Nxt Lvl with summer promotions, including offering 15 cents off a gallon of gas for MAPCO MY Reward$ loyalty program customers who buy two cans of the beverage.
“Our MAPCO relationship is an important step in furthering the strategic expansion of the NXT LVL brand of performance beverages across the southern United States,” said Jason Tucker, president of Takeover Industries. “We are excited that MAPCO consumers can hydrate with NXT LVL Hydrogen Infused Spring Water and save on gas through the MAPCO rewards program.”

South Carolina continues to work north-south on the football recruiting trail under head coach Shane Beamer and his staff and it continues to pay off.
On Sunday, the Gamecocks received their first public verbal commitment of the 2023 cycle as three-star safety Zahbari Sandy (Washington, D.C./St. John’s College) picked the Gamecocks over Ole Miss, Tennessee, West Virginia and Maryland.
The 6-foot-1, 204-pound Sandy is a physical player with good coverage skills that not only is another quality addition from the region, but another quality member of what is shaping up to be a two-cycle retooling of the South Carolina secondary.
The progress up the Atlantic seaboard has its roots in the Marshawn Lloyd recruitment from the 2020 cycle. Former running backs coach Thomas Brown landed Lloyd, who played at DeMatha (Md.), but who is actually from the state of Delaware. This commit, which was not part of a larger trend at the time, established that the Gamecocks could go into the DMV (greater Washington, D.C., including northern Virginia and Maryland) and land a high-profile prospect. That’s not to say a player like Jakai Moore, who was heavily recruited, or Vershon Lee, did not make a different (both were from northern Virginia), but with Lloyd you were talking about a borderline five-star prospect that Carolina beat Georgia and others for.
When Beamer and his staff took over, the idea was to expand the territory. Associated head coach Pete Lembo has longstanding connections up there. Torian Gray and Beamer himself obviously have recruited the area previously during stops at Virginia Tech (both), Georgia (Beamer) and Oklahoma (Beamer). So it made sense not only from the standpoint of the geographic location of the University of South Carolina (the easternmost SEC program) and the demographics of the student body (a large number of students from the DMV up I-95 into the northeast), but from a previously-established relationship standpoint.
Director of Player Personnel Taylor Edwards thought strategically it made sense given that you can sell the SEC and offer top prospects in that area something different and also there may be a clearer path than there is trying to battle it out in Georgia or Florida for a high-level player that all of the programs locally are after.
It started with the 2021 class in the transfer portal. Linebacker Debo Williams, a Delaware product, transferred in from the University of Delaware. Wide receiver EJ Jenkins and quarterback Jason Brown, both Virginia natives who have recently-departed the program, came in from St. Francis (Pa.). Carlins Platel spent his final season at Carolina. The Massachusetts native transferred in from Division II Assumption.
Then, moving forward to 2022, the Gamecocks landed quarterback Braden Davis. The Under Armour All-American was the Delaware Player of the Year and has already enrolled. Four-star safety Keenan Nelson Jr. out of Philadelphia was selected for the (formerly Army) All-American Bowl and had a lengthy offer sheet. Offensive lineman Ryan Brubaker out of Pennsylvania was another early commit. Nelson and Brubaker will enroll this summer.
Sandy is the first public commit of the 2023 cycle and the first from that area, but chances are he will not be the last.
Carolina was low on numbers in the secondary after Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu (NFL Draft) and Jammie Robinson (transferred to Florida State) left the program following the departure of head coach Will Muschamp and the arrival of Beamer and company. So that meant for the 2022 and 2023 classes, replenishing numbers on the back end was and is a must.
The Gamecocks signed eight potential defensive backs in the 2022 cycle, including Anthony Rose (Miami, Fla./Central) and Peyton Williams (Rockwall, Texas/Rockwall-Heath), who have already enrolled along with Central Michigan transfer Devonni Reed. Nelson, Emory Floyd (Powder Springs, Ga./Hillgrove), Nick Emmanwori (Irmo, S.C.) and Kajuan Banks (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby) all will arrive this summer. DeQuandre Smith (Columbia, S.C./Spring Valley) will sign in August and enroll then. His spot will count toward the 2023 cycle.
It is not anticipated that South Carolina repeats those numbers on the back end of the defense this cycle, but the Gamecocks are still in heavy pursuit of plenty of defensive backs for 2023. Then, you never know what will happen with the transfer portal.
As far as further prospects from the DMV (and north of it) this cycle, it is likely to happen. There are multiple possibilities. If Carolina can land 2-4 quality prospects from that area every cycle, it is a big boost in terms of talent and quality numbers. The more you sign, the less you have to depend on the numbers within the Palmetto State, fighting what are at times uphill battles in the surrounding states or reaching for players and hoping they pan out (for those that do not know, there is a difference between a developmental prospect that is a strong evaluation and a straight up reach).
So for a first known commitment this cycle, Sandy was significant in a number of ways.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - A dire shortage is now putting even more strain on new parents across the metro.
Baby formula continues to run low nationwide. Many store shelves are left empty, and prices are now reflecting the problem.
The average cost is up as much as 18-percent over the last 12 months.
“There was a bit of panic as to what are we going to do to feed our child?” said Amar Mohan, father of two.
Mohan and his wife have a 2-year-old and a 3-month-old. The scarcity has left them both scrambling to feed their infant.
“Initially, it was just going anywhere and everywhere to find it. So I think we drove anywhere from 60 miles to 75 to get the powder because there was nothing in any of the stores nearby - even in Roswell, Duluth, Sandy Springs - there was nothing,” said Mohen.
Datasembly provides access to billions of grocery and retail pricing records from every store at hundreds of retailers. They said during the last week of April, more than 40-percent of baby formulas were out of stock in stores. Some fear that number is only going to get worse
For new mother Allison Allday, who recently switched her son to baby formula, she was terrified the first time she saw the empty shelves.
“It’s been a wild ride. It’s been full of tears,” said Allday.
She eventually got a prescription through their pediatrician and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) filled it. But there’s still no guarantee.
“So far, everything is working but she could text me back and say, ‘Hey, we just don’t have it,’” Allday said.
Parents are finding different ways to improvise. But CBS46 News asked a local pediatrician what you shouldn’t do.
“You don’t want to try to water down what you have because that can be extremely dangerous for babies to get watered down formula, so, you want to make it exactly as you’re supposed to,” said Dr. Samira Brown, a pediatrician at Piedmont Health.
