More Rock & Lobsters In Seaside Lagoon
The annual Redondo Beach Lobster Festival was, at one time, a true “Rock Lobster” event in the Los Angeles South Bay’s Beach Cities.
No, the B52s were not there, but a lot of people in the Beach Cities are for this three day-and-night event in Redondo Beach, CA.
However, this annual event, held the third weekend in September, has been canceled but in its place is a similar event with different organizers. It’s called Lobster Rock and it’s pretty much the same thing, with some notable food differences.
First of all, it’s also the third weekend, Sept. 21-23. It’s also in Seaside Lagoon. There are bands, beers (craft and otherwise), quality wines and, of course lobsters.
Tickets are $20 per day or $50 for all three days. Food and drink are priced separately – $22 for a lobster dinner from Quality Seafood, $40 for two. Lobster rolls, lobster mac ‘n cheese and other local restaurants such as Mama D’s and Silvo’s are also serving special small plates for $8.
Held in King Harbor’s Seaside Lagoon, it is always a big drew for many South Bay singles, who love to mingle to the live entertainment.
A main attraction for the many South Bay party people who are always looking for a good excuse to gather with other singles and drink beer are the bands.
