Lobster Fest hopefuls flock ferry; over 100 left

Persons left behind at the ferry dock in Road Town this morning.

Roughly more than 100 persons who were heading to Anegada for day two of the annual Lobster Festival were left behind at the ferry dock in Road Town this morning.

A relatively large number of persons had turned up at the dock to board the only ferry scheduled to depart Road Town for Anegada today.

However, the vessel reached its maximum passenger capacity and had to turn away Lobster Fest hopefuls.

An unplanned extra ferry was hired afterwards to retrieve the crowd left at the dock.

This year marks the 5th staging of Anegada Lobster Fest. The two-day culinary event was in danger of being cancelled due to the hurricanes which devastated the British Virgin Islands in September.

By the looks of things, the annual food fair will still pull big numbers in relation to attendance.

Lobster Fest was created by the BVI Tourist Board to attract the local community, new and returning visitors, and the ‘niche market of food connoisseurs’ to the territory.

The event typically features local chefs who prepare and serve plated sample lobster dishes at participating Anegada restaurants.
