Spring is the time for soft shell crabs and the Old Village in Port Royal is the place to get them any way you want them. You only have a little time to enjoy soft shell crab. It only comes once a year and the 11th annual Soft Shell Crab Festival is the chance to savor these delicacies. 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.
Food vendors, artists and crafters will be lined up on Paris Avenue as well as 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 approximately 5,000 rubber crabs are “adopted” by festival attendees for $10 each. The crab will be dropped into Battery Creek at 5:00 pm and the owner of the crab to cross the finish line at the Observation Deck will receive a $2,000 cash prize.
