As an East Coast girl with an innate love of lobster, learning about the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival touched a warm place in my heart. I have fond memories of my dad cooking lobster for us as kids and of the hilarious antics our cat would perform to earn a bite.
The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival is the biggest lobster festival in the world and a 4-times Guinness world record holder. I spoke with Jim Hall, founder and organizer of the festival, to learn what makes this such a special event.
The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival, or Lobster Fest, has been a Los Angeles tradition since 1999. This year, the festival will be held on the LA waterfront in San Pedro the weekend of July 22-24.
