The Annual Placencia Lobster Fest takes place this coming weekend. Chairperson for the event is Wendy Bryan who says this year there are some added attractions.

One its larger, we have four tents, we have a beer garden, We’ve got a biathlon, which is a running and kayak race. We have the travelers rum punch competition, and lots of games for kids, and of course, the big fishing tournament. That’s actually one of the conditions for having a food booth, you have to serve one lobster dish, and it ranges from fajitas, to lobster pizza, to lobster on a stick, any kind of lobster you can imagine.

Bryan adds that the Lobster Fest is the major fundraising event in Placencia. Proceeds will go towards the construction of a new central walkway in Placencia.
