Long Beach Original Lobster Festival
The Long Beach Original Lobster Festival returns for its 21st year of providing Fresh Live Maine Lobster, prepared to mouth-watering perfection in the World’s Largest Cooker. You can dance away the calories to a variety of popular artists throughout the day on the dance floor, enjoy tasty eats in the food court, kick back in the VIP Lounge, take a Free Souvenir E-Photo, check out the Arts & Crafts booths, catch some sports action at the Live Sports Tent, sip on adult beverages (beer, wine, specialty drinks — infamous Signature drink "Screaming Lobster" and Margaritas), and sing a tune at the Karaoke Lounge with a Live Band (on Saturday night). There is something for everyone, including kids, Animal Variety Show, Petting Zoo, Face Painting, Games and Inflatable Bounces.
