Our Lady of the Gulf Church hosts a "Crab Fest" on July 4th weekend every year. People come from far and near to feast on all kinds of seafood, listen to live music and ride the various rides as well as browse through the many crafts available for purchase.
Our Crab Fest is held on the Crab Fest Grounds behind our Community Center overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Each year, thousands of people enjoy all that this long-running Coast festival has to offer.
Over 100 crafters display their crafts and the crafts are available for purchase.
You can listen to live music all during the weekend and even dance along.
