The International Sea Bean and Beachcomber’s Festival is held every Fall in Cocoa Beach, Florida.  People come from all over the world to talk about everything that washes onto the beach (including sea beans, sea glass, seashells, fishing floats, and even plastic toys).  Special lectures in the past have been given by oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer and Dr. Beachcomb.  The displays at the festival are always interesting.  Particularly fun is the “show-and-tell” among participants about the beach treasures they’ve found the past year.  More info is at:
