The 7th annual Sailfish Marina Spiny Lobsterfest was an amazing event! If you have not been, I strongly suggest you put it on your calendar for next year. This year’s Spiny Lobsterfest beneficiary was The West Palm Beach Fishing club. It took place on the brand new Tiki Lawn adjacent to the restaurant. Coastal Angler Magazine Palm Beach County was a sponsor and had a booth set up at the event along with Leonard Bryant Photography and other great vendors such as High Point Paddle, Code Rum, One of a Kind Metal Sculptures, Kudu Klips, The Bongo House Island Art, Second Chance Puppies & Kitten Rescue, Binka, Hook & Tackle, Artwork by Steve Diossy, Scales, Due South Brewing Co., Pelagic, Get Wet Watersports, Woof Gang Bakery, and many more.
Let’s not forget about why we were all there, the lobster! Visitors dined on lobster tails, lobster tacos, lobster rolls, lobster ceviche, lobster ravioli, and lobster mac and cheese; each one so delicious I can’t even pick a favorite. While adults enjoyed listening to Big Vince and the Phat Cats, the food, great cocktails, participating in the silent auctions and raffles; kids had a blast enjoying snow cones, bounce houses, water slides, and a blow up ax throwing attraction all supplied by Jupiter Bounce.
The fun didn’t stop there, even pets got in on the action in the Sailfish Marina’s signature “Lobster Pet Costume Contest”. Dogs of all sizes, birds, goats, and even a huge tortoise came to show off their lobster costumes. This year’s winner was Ziggy the Shih Tzu who took home the grand prize gift basket from Woof Gang Bakery and a weekend stay at Sailfish Marina Resort!
