The annual lobster fest is a one week celebration to kick off the lobster season in Belize. This year the San Pedro Lobster Fest 2012 started off in grand fashion with opening ceremonies at El Divino Restaurant at Banana Beach Resort.
The festivities continued with the Grand Lobster Crawl, where lobster enthusiasts could visit participating local restaurants, bars and businesses to have their Lobster Crawl Passport stamped while enjoying daily special events. At the end of the week each stamp counted as a ticket to enter a grand raffle to win a vacation package to San Pedro Lobster Fest 2013.
The event moved to Fido’s Courtyard where lobster specials such a bacon-wrapped lobster skewers were devoured and dance- contagious live music entertained the crowd. Sunday the party started at the Sea Horse Bar at Corona del Mar where Carolyn’s lobster tacos and grilled tails were a hit. Although rain threatened the day, lobstermania continued that evening at Kama Lounge.
Each and everyday of the week was full of different and unique activities which makes San Pedro’s lobster fest one of the biggest attractions in the country.
The winning restaurant for the best lobster dish was Elvi’s Kitchen Curry Coconut Lobster almost had a perfect score from the judges. Their dish was awarded the Best Dish while Blue Water Grill/Red Ginger and Caliente’s Lobster Key Lime Martini captured the Best Drink Award.
Crazy Canucks hosted the evening fun with delicious coconut popcorn lobster and drink specials. The San Pedro Lobster fest proves to be attracting hundreds of mainland and international visitors to the island making it perhaps one of the biggest Lobster Festivals in the entire country.
Crazy Canucks brought these crowds to the Exotic Caye Beach Resort on this night and aside from a long power out the night of Canucks’ event, the event generated much good will and interest on the island.
