It’s that time of year when our collective thoughts turn to…..lobster.
The South Bay pays homage to all things lobster at the 18 Annual Redondo Beach Lobster Festival beginning Friday, September 20 and running through Sunday, September 22.
Lobster may reign supreme at this classic South Bay event but there are plenty of other reasons to attend. The music line-up features live bands and DJ’s playing throughout the weekend as well as stand up paddle board lessons, mechanical bull rides, carnival midway games, face painting and balloon art.
There are several lobster meal packages available for your dining pleasure. If you’re not in the mood for lobster (gasp!) or wearing a bib doesn’t appeal to your fashion sense, several local restaurants will be serving up alternative mouth-watering dishes: Kincaid's Captain Kidd's, Baleen Kitchen and others.
Be sure to stop by Craft Beer Alley for a tasty selection of brews on tap.
The Festival takes place at the Seaside Lagoon next to King Harbor, just north of the Redondo Beach Pier at 200 Portofino Way in Redondo Beach (at the corner of Harbor Drive and Beryl Street).
Free bike parking will be available courtesy of the Beach Cities Cycling Club and Hermosa Cyclery.
All lobster, all the time. Long live lobster!
