Day one of Greenport’s first annual seafood festival — dubbed “Shellabration”  — got off to a strong start Saturday as hundreds of people strolled through the Village sampling dishes prepared by 10 participating restaurants. Local vineyards offered wine pairings to round out the experience.

After sampling the Oyster Friskafella, scallops and clam fritter at The Frisky Oyster on Front Street, participants Arlene and John Chianese of Cutchogue voted them No. 1, although they admitted that all the culinary creations had been quite good.

“This has been a great experience,” Arlene said. “We’ve stopped in some restaurants that we might not have normally eaten at.”

Shellabration continues on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Wristbands can be purchased at the Greenport Harbor Brewing Company on Carpenter Street.
