Friday, June 9th, 2017
The opening of the lobster season is just around the corner, and with it comes the annual San Pedro Lobster Fest Extravaganza. Activities begin on Thursday, June 15th, and will culminate with a grand block party on Saturday, June 24th at Central Park. With just a few days left before the festivities, organizers are busy at work, making final touches for this year’s much anticipated 2017 Lobster Fest.
One of the most popular activities is the Lobster Crawl, in which crawlers are invited to visit the participating establishments and get their Lobster Fest Passport stamped. As usual, each stamp will earn you a chance to win the grand raffle prize consisting of the ultimate vacation package for two to the 2018 Lobster Fest. Passports can be obtained at the participating establishments.
This year’s Lobster Crawl will open at the El Divino Restaurant at Banana Beach Resort on Thursday, June 15th at 3PM with the live performance of Cuban group Morena Son. The celebration will continue on Friday, June 16th during the day at Wahoo’s Lounge, while Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant and Bar will host the evening.
