Coastal Link: Pin Point Seafood Festival

SAVANNAH, GA -

Just off the Diamond Causeway sits the quiet community of Pin Point- a small settlement that stretches less than a mile from end to end, but has a history that spans generations.

Many of the folks who live there are the descendents of freed slaves who sailed from Ossabaw and other islands to make a home inland.

Pieces of the past are still very much a part of that close knit community... like Sweet Field of Eden Baptist Church... a place of worship that has stood at the corner of Lehigh and Pin Point Avenues for more than a century.

On Saturday, September 21, the public has a chance to learn more about that history while enjoying some of the best seafood around during what organizers are calling 'A Taste of the Point on the Moon River'.

The seafood festival will take place at 9992 Pin Point Road.

Admission is $5 per person. For more information, call: (912) 596-8031.
