Everyone’s favorite crustacean is celebrated this weekend at the Original Lobster Festival. A master chef steams up live Maine lobsters flown in daily for the event.

(Lobster Feast is not included in general admission; see website for detailed prices.) A giant food court offers numerous dining alternatives, and beach bars serve refreshments for the over 21 crowd.    

Festival goers are entertained with live music on two stages, a dance floor, and arts and crafts booths.

Saturday and Sunday from noon until 6pm, the Children's Stage showcases magicians, live reptiles and more. And no festival would be complete without inflatable bounces for the kids, and carnival rides and games as well. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
