The San Pedro Lobster Fest has commenced
Friday, June 17th, 2016
After four months of waiting, lobster season has re-opened, and the 10th Annual Lobster Fest, voted the number one festival in Belize, has arrived to San Pedro as well. With fishermen bringing in loads of lobster, the island is being stocked with enough lobster to satisfy eager taste buds. The first Lobster Crawl event took place at Amber Beach Bar & Grill at Caribbean Villas on Wednesday, June 15th, where many lovers of the tasty crustacean dined on their special: Honey Glazed Lobster with Coconut Rice and Steamed Veggies. Guests also enjoyed live music, and drank spicy mangorita’s to celebrate the start of the festival.
The Lobster Crawl continued on Thursday, June 16th at Caye Coffee Roasting Company. Attendees enjoyed discounted prices on coffee products, as well as a presentation on the art of roasting coffee. For the night crowd, the Lobster Fest fun moved to Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant and Bar where patrons enjoyed Chef Maresha’s signature lobster appetizers and dishes.
The Lobster Fest Committee reminds the public that they will be issuing out Lobster Crawl Passports that will allow you to collect stamps at every venue during the week’s celebrations. Each stamp will entitle the passport holder to a raffle ticket to enter a grand raffle for a vacation package for two to the San Pedro Lobster Festival 2017.
