BRIDGEPORT — Bridgeport will be alive with West Indian culture on Saturday, August 18, when the 12th annual Caribbean Jerk Fest sets up shop near the band shell in Seaside Park.

Stretching from noon to 8 p.m., the event will serve up loads of music, food, crafts and other attractions. Enjoy dishes of jerk chicken and pork, as well as curried goat, patties and other West Indian delicacies including pastries and sweets. The event is sponsored by the West Indian American Association of Greater Bridgeport.
