Little River has streamlined the name of its annual fall music/crustacean event, and plans for ShrimpFest 2012 are well underway. The primary reason for the change was so the festival could include more genres of music, and the two-day event will feature pop, modern country, gospel, bluegrass, beach music and, of course, jazz. The shrimp and grits cookoff remains thankfully unchanged. Enter your recipe and you’re eligible to win the Judge’s Choice Award, the People’s Choice Award and the admiration of all your family and friends.

ShrimpFest 2012 is Saturday, Oct. 13 and Sunday, Oct. 14. The cookoff is Sunday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call 866-817-8082 or e-mail
