Lobsterfest King and Queen Pageant participants will be required to perform a unique talent on stage for the judges, and points will be awarded for costume & appearance as well as their talent. This competition is open to all.
The ‘Flavor of San Pedro’ Drink competition will feature the best bartenders in San Pedro creating the perfect cocktail on stage, to be judged by a panel of celebrity judges.

Participants in the Food Competition will be judged both on the quality of their food as well as the presentation of their dishes from their booth to the judges table.
