Thousands of people flocked to the Deering Estate on Cutler Bay to enjoy a perfect Spring afternoon in South Florida.

Armed with lawn chairs, savvy fairgoers staked a claim on the expansive estate lawn to enjoy the cool bay breezes and entertainment as they chowed down on fruits of the sea.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect to enjoy a beer, scarf down a dozen crawdaddies, and get some some at the 10th annual Deering Seafood Festival. Here's what we ate.
