We combine local popular artists, Swing, Salsa, R&B/Motown, Decades 70s/80s Dance Bands, tons of Fresh Live Maine Lobsters steamed in the World’s Largest Cooker prepared and served by a Master Chef for that mouth watering taste, giant food court, children’s area, dance floor, two stages and beach bars to create the largest Lobster Festival outside of Maine, right here in Southern California.
