San Pedro, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2014
Putting heroes first, the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival, the World's Largest Lobster Festival, in partnership with San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant presented checks totaling $5,000 to veteran's groups including the Wounded Warrior Project last night, the opening evening for the three day Festival.
"Lobster Festival weekend in San Pedro is unlike any other. To see the families come out to support veterans was really special," said Mike Ungaro, Senior Vice President of San Pedro Fish Market & Restaurant. "Hats off to Jim Hall and his entire team at the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival. Every year they go out of their way to make it the world's best as well as largest festival of its kind."
Held each year in the Ports of Call shopping district along the picture perfect edge of the LA Waterfront in San Pedro, CA, the festival attracted large crowds who honored veterans while enjoying feasts of $20 lobster dinners, cutting edge bands, and family fun. Tens of thousands of families are expected this weekend to beat the heat at the Festival, which runs through Sunday, September 14.
Four-time Guinness World Record winner, the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival is the largest event of its kind in the world. It is the only event ever to win three Guinness World Records in one day. "There is no better entertainment and dining bargain than the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival," said Hall. "We deliver a day of dynamic family entertainment and a delicious fresh cooked lobster meal for less than the meal would cost in any restaurant.”
