14th Annual Soft Shell Crab Festival
Port Royal, South Carolina
Spring is the time for soft shell crabs and the Old Village in Port Royal is the place to get them in any form imaginable. The opportunity for soft shell crab is quick. Local restaurants will serve up varieties of soft shell crab in clever variations. If crab isn’t your thing, barbeque, burgers, ice cream, other seafood and more also will be available. Organizers expect food vendors, artists and crafters lined up on Paris Avenue. Children activities, live music and entertainment for individuals of all ages. Once again, a classic car show will feature dozens of old-school vehicles. The festival will also feature the annual crab race where we will drop 5,000 individually-numbered, floating crabs into the waters of Battery Creek near the boardwalk at 5:00 PM and the first ten crabs to cross the finish line will win cash prizes which total $5,000. The first place crab wins $2,000. Better still, one of those lucky ten winners will have a chance to win $40,000 in cash!!! (see also: www.PortRoyalCrabRace.com )
