Something big and red is coming with endless gifts this December... That's right, it's the Houston Crab Festival! What did you think I meant? This December, Houston is getting a massive crab fest with all-you-can-eat seafood and it feels like Christmas already.

On December 13 and 14 from noon to 8 p.m., the Crab Festival will be hosted in the middle of a polo field. There are promises of local bands, artist vendors, festival activities, and a Texas twist on all things seafood (Texas-style means there will also be ribs, obviously).

Hosted by the Victory Cup, the event is sure to be celebrated with lots of class.

Tickets are $15 for General Admission and $85 for VIP. The VIP ticket gets access to the VIP areas, two pounds of crabs, unlimited oysters, clams, or mussels, and all-you-can-drink beverages (virgin ones, that is). You do the math to see if that 5.6x price increase is worth it.

All I'm saying is for that price, we better get a crab this size.

But don't get too crabby. Both tickets will get you in the door both days. However, you can only exercise the all-you-can-eat portion for one of the festival days.

For $35 extra, you can even add a whole, 1.5 live Maine lobster onto your GA ticket. But remember, this has to be pre-ordered and not purchased on a hangry whim.

Make sure you buy a ticket online before the event because there will be no day-of sales or upgrades.

The Victory Cup is also hosting a massive hot air balloon festival and polo match this December.
