Fresh stone crab claws, live music, exciting events, art, awesome activities—and free admission!
I thought that might get you to prick up your ears! The Stone Crab Festival clatters into Naples (1200 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102) from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Oct. 26 – 28, 2012. Chow down on a tasty weekend on the historic Old Naples Waterfront with action that includes:
You can snag $5 parking at the former Grand Central site and Port O' Call marina.
Fun Stone Crab Fact: In order to assure the continued survival of the species, only one claw may be removed so the crab can defend itself. After a claw is removed, the crab is returned to water and the claw regenerates.
Update: It turns out my fun 'fact' is fiction. JoNell Modys, PR & Communications Manager for the Naples, Marco Island and Everglades CVB, says both claws can be harvested if they measure 2 3/4 from the bottom tip of the claw to the bend of the claw. Thanks for the info, JoNell!
