It’s officially lobster season in the Florida Keys, and Key West celebrated the spiny crustacean in style during Lobsterfest 2023 Aug. 8-13.
The event included pool parties, pub crawls, brunches and boils, but the main event took place Aug. 12 in the first five blocks of Duval Street.
The annual Lobsterfest street fair and concert packed the street from noon to 11 p.m., featuring restaurant booths of buttery lobster, prepared in various ways, plus plenty of cold drinks. Live music by the likes of Just George, Fried Newt, The Killer Dudes and the Durtbags filled the stage at the corner of Duval and Greene streets.
Lobster season runs from Aug. 6 to March 31 in the Florida Keys.
