2006 Texas Crab Festival

On Saturday, I attended the 2006 Texas Crab Festival at Crystal Beach, Texas. Mark was assigned to cover it for The Beaumont Enterprise. So, I took my camera to cover it for my blog.

The festival has children's activities, rides and good food.

Children enjoyed the Crab Race at the festival. The crab looked bit tired when taken from water to participate in the race. You can tell they weren't happy after a few races.

Bobby decorates each shipping box by hand. I thought it was very nice of him.

Bobby works on a wood clock for a customer, who ordered it for Mother's Day.

This is a nice example of his gemstone and rock trees.

I ate two of these crab cake sandwiches. They were really good.

Gator on a stick is very popular in this part of the country. I tried it at the 2005 Texas Gator Fest and didn't like it that much.

Mr. T's famous Pork-A-Bob's served his famous grilled pork and chicken kebob. They're the best.
