The 12th annual Lobster Fest will take place at St. Francis by the Sea Episcopal Church in Indian Beach, 920 Salter Path Road, on Saturday, Oct. 8, from noon to 4pm. As in past years, it will be a great excuse for a dinner party with family and friends, either at home or at the church.
Live lobsters are delivered to the church directly from Maine. On-site cooks prepare them to go and for meals served at the church. A new cooker has helped speed up the process, allowing several containers of lobsters to cook at a time.
A complete lobster dinner, including potato salad, coleslaw and homemade dessert, is $25. Add a cooked lobster to an eat-in dinner or take cooked lobsters home for $21 each. If you are feeling more adventuresome, you can get live lobsters for $19 each and cook them at home. The lobsters are large, approximately 1 ½ lbs. each.
Advance tickets are available through Oct. 1 from parishioners or by calling 240-2388 (church office) or 354-5859 (Linda Davies). Those who bought tickets in the past will receive order forms in the mail.
