By SHARON HUMENICK

On behalf of the 2020 Tunarama Committee I would like to extend a warm welcome to the visitors to our region, thank you to our wonderful locals, without your support and encouragement, it would be impossible to continue to deliver this festival year after year.

From the prawn shelling competition to all the delicious food that will be on offer at the event, the festival showcases the best seafood Port Lincoln has to offer.

Tunarama provides an excellent opportunity to highlight our local seafood, produce, wines, craft beer, talent, and events.
