Lobster of the Wharf Event July 6, 2013
     This is a full day and night event scheduled for Saturday July 6th, 2013.  It will take place on the wharf in Royal Star Food’s Parking Lot, and will kick off with a tour of the factory followed by a lobster shelling contest.
     A Seafood tasting tent will be set up with numerous stations featuring many lobster recipes,  other local and Island specialities, and the finalists of the Seafood Chowder Contest.
     The Chowder entries will be submitted a few days before.   Four  finalists will have their recipes prepared in a licensed kitchen and available for a blind taste judging by the visitors who purchase tickets to the tasting tent. Local entertainment will be happening all afternoon.
     A Lobster Race will be held in the harbour, buoy painting, knot tying and head lacing experiences as well as boat tours will all be available.  A fishermen’s challenge will be held in the afternoon as well.
