The 19th annual Crabby Clam & Lobster Fest, presented by CATHOLIC FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, is coming FAST, and we've got a few new bands, as well as old favorites. We've also expanded our hours, and we've been getting calls from all over Michigan, the U.S., and even Canada, asking about this year's festival lineup.

We are, of course once again, expecting some wild nights (both nights) with The Rock Show (YES! It's "…that  'Journey' band"- as one of our Canadian callers referred to them). Of course, they're not only a phenomenal "Journey" tribute band, but also offer incredible renditions of piles of 70's and 80's classics!

Again this year it's Jim McKeith, Three Men & a Tenor, and One Track Mind on Saturday, with Dave & Andy Dalton, annual favorites, opening both days.

Make sure you get there early Friday evening if you want a reading with Maria Shaw's Psychic Fun Fair.

All the entertainment this year is being presented by Schaefer Bierlein Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and Key North Surf Shop in Caseville is back, and these guys know how to party! They'll be selling party hats and supplies to help you get in the "Crabby, Clammy" spirit, with all sales proceeds benefiting the kids of the JBCF.

Speaking of partying, we're featuring our Famous Dave's Bloody Mary Mix & Grand Travese Distillery spirits again this year–if you can handle it! And you won't miss any baseball or football since ABC Warehouse is providing TVs, powered by Future Vision-Direct TV, which we'll be giving away in a raffle benefiting the Foundation.

Northwoods Wholesale Outlet in Pinconning, and ABC Warehouse, and many area stores have some great raffle prizes again this year, so make sure to enter! Your odds of winning something are far better than almost any other raffle. In fact, we have many people winning multiple prizes! As always, we'll have a 50/50 drawing at least once/hour throughout the weekend too (Thanks, Julie and Dianne!).

We'll be open an hour earlier each day, this year. On Friday, October 9th, we'll open the tent at 3:00pm, and on Saturday morning at 11am.

PLEASE REMEMBER, we can, and WILL, run out of high demand entrees, probably in the late afternoon, or early evening on Saturday. We are a charity, and there's no tomorrow for us to serve the leftovers. We don't want to waste money, so please come earlier if you really want crab or lobster, and just to be safe, clams as well.

Don't miss the biggest Fall party! JOIN US OCTOBER 9TH & 10TH, 2015!

Seeeyyaaa,

Johnny

Can you smell the seafood in the air?
