Win Tickets to Lobster Fest [CLOSED]

Support Provided By
LobsterFestpost

We're giving away tickets to the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival!

The annual event, held at Ports o' Call Village in San Pedro, is a three-day jamboree of music, pirates, and of course, lobster, flown in from Maine and cooked on the spot. It's this weekend, September 14, 15, and 16.

KCET has six pairs of admission tickets to give away - we can get you in the door, but the $19 lobster dinner is an extra $19.

In addition, we have one pair of VIP tickets, which includes one lobster feast per ticket holder!

To win, leave a comment here telling us which is better for lobster dipping: butter or mayo? The first seven commenters will win two tickets (must be used together, one day only), and we'll choose a VIP winner at random from those seven.

Be sure to register with your full name and email address so we can contact you!

Let us know: mayo, or butter?

What Cinco de Mayo Has to do with the French in Early L.A.

Cinco de Mayo is often celebrated wrongly as Mexican Independence Day, but a dig into the historical landscape of Los Angeles in the early 19th century reveals a complex relationship of French émigrés with a Mexican Los Angeles.
