In addition to Food Booths, the Town Block Party will also feature a new ‘Community Corner’ where local charities and community organizations can set up displays and draw attention to the many worthwhile causes in San Pedro.
Lobsterfest King and Queen Pageant participants will be required to perform a unique talent on stage for the judges, and points will be awarded for costume & appearance as well as their talent. This competition is open to all.
The ‘Flavor of San Pedro’ Drink competition will feature the best bartenders in San Pedro creating the perfect cocktail on stage, to be judged by a panel of celebrity judges.

Participants in the Food Competition will be judged both on the quality of their food as well as the presentation of their dishes from their booth to the judges table. The creativity of their presentation as they move through the crowd to present their dishes to the judges is a key component this year.

I hope you both had a great time in Barbados and Grenada. We are all looking forward to seeing you as well.
Hello everyone….Bob and I are getting packed for Lobsterfest…actually we are just getting clean underwear since most of of stuff is still in the bag from last weeks trip to Barbados and Grenada…hey, we’re just a couple of crazy guys!!! Really looking forward to seeing you all next week, we will have a BLAST!!!! See ya soon.
Good to know Amy ty.
Well since you asked…..add a few drops of eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender oil to any non scented lotion or carrier oil… You can also add ingredients to shampoos etc so they help with the de bugging…..this is primarily for mosquitos but should work for most anything. Another tip is to add lemongrass oil to a ribbon and tie it on…..neck, belt loop or what have you. Not sure if this will work on the skeeters in your corner of the world. I’ll let you know when we come down if it works. 🙂
JS sounds like fin – I am sure we can handle you city folk. Glad you are excited and can come for some of the fun. Sorry you will not be here for the big block party it is going to top the chart. For sure you will find us Thursday night at Trivia. Probably Tues night at Fido’s but not sure yet – we will be there in the afternoon for sure.
I would imagine some of the spas sell them but have not looked. What’s your bug spray mix Amy?
Hey tacogirl, is it possible to get essential oils in san pedro? If so you can make bug spray that’s non toxic with them.
Planning on bringing a crew from the Radisson for opening night and tuesday. Do you think the Island can handle us City folk? We’re really excited. We’d love to come out for the weekend but most of us have Father’s day activities with family. Hope to see you and Tacoboy out there.
That’s great JoAnna you picked a perfect day to arrive. The block party is going to be off the hook. As to bug stuff we use cutters or off it is really what ever works best for you. Glad you enjoy my blog. Congrats on condo and future move here.
My daughter and I are coming on the 19th. Can’t wait! Been reading your blog for a while enjoy it. We are moving to AC when our condo is done…..whoo hooo. Any suggestions on which bug stuff works best?
I wish you were too but we will save you a spot for 2011.
I so wish we were going to be there this year! I will never stray from San Pedro again! Believe me when I say “we have learned our lesson!” Tracy is still trying to recover (and not from drinking) – poor guy! San Pedro 2011 – here we come!
I totally agree how soon can you get your ass down here lol.
I think that Lobster fest is in need of a carnie who specializes in pretty much everything needed to run a festial. Now where can we find that person…..
Great you are coming Wayne – the official one is June 14th – June 19th but there will still be lots of lobster to enjoy when you are here.
I can wait to enjoy the San Pedro Lobsterfest I will be there on June 25th – June 28th.
