Crab Festival Tips (3)

Crab Festival 2003

While not as wet as Crab Festival 2002 (See accompianing tip) 2003 suffered the wrath of wind on a few days. I suppose it was entirely appropriate as this years theme was "Gale Force Fun". Ha.

Rides arrived late on the early morning of the first day of the festival. Corporate Sponsorship was lost this year, and the general feel of the event was a bit sad. A festival that should rival any in Alaska is slipping away.

Crab Festival Fun - 2003

At the end of May every year there is the Kodiak Island Crab Festival. If you're from a big place you may find it boring but for us small towners we like it! Here is one of the rides.
