There are festivals and conventions dedicated to a lot of different things around Texas. Some are fully stocked with flowers, others have everything about cats, but this one is all about lobsters. That's right, El Paso is having a giant lobster festival from April 26th to the 28th.
The festival will feature the worlds largest lobster cooker in the world. Though the heavenly crustacean will be the highlighted dish at the fest, lobsters won't be the only thing available to eat. There will also be a number of different surf and turf options from different stands at the event, including gator bites, seasoned fries, shrimp and steak.
During the three days, the festival will have a variety of musicians, DJs and more to keep the party going. Once the sun goes down, the third stage will host a DJ and laser light show. You also get a free souvenir E-photo that is perfect for posting on your Instagram. The photo is taken at their designated booth where you will find props like lobster hats, shark masks and inflatable lobster claws.
At the festival, there will be an art and crafts booth so you can make your own lobster themed souvenir. If you're not really the "make something by hand" type, you can feel free to enjoy the many games and carnival rides or even catch a "freakshow" where the artists will perform wild stunts.
General admission for one day is $13 but you can purchase a pass for $30 which includes a decadent lobster meal. Tickets are on sale now for all three days. The event will be from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday and from noon until 11 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
El Paso Lobster Fest will be located at 6900 Delta Drive. For more information on this mouthwatering festival, you can visit their Facebook event page here.
