Folks Flock To Lobsterfest

The line was long and the steam was rising Friday evening, Aug. 20, as the 30th annual Lobsterfest kicked off it's three-day run at the Canton Volunteer Fire Company on Canton Springs Road. Photos: dotCANTON

The promise of lobster, New England clam chowder, corn on the cob and good company made the wait in line worth it for the hungry diners who came to Lobsterfest, a Canton tradition, Friday evening, Aug. 20.

Canton Voluntary Fire Company member Corey Russo said Friday is always the busiest time at Lobsterfest, with about 1,800 dinners consumed between 6 and 9:30 p.m. He said the company anticipates 2,200 more dinners will be ordered between noon and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21. Lobsterfest concludes with a four-hour seating on Sunday, Aug. 22, with dinners available from noon to 4 p.m., unless the food runs out sooner.

Russo said 4,200 lobsters were purchased for the event, with the company able to obtain more if needed. He said the company purchased 75 bags of corn, each bag containing 60 ears. Russo guessed that 350 gallons of New England clam chowder would be consumed Friday night alone.
