Freshly cooked lobster will be on the menu this Saturday June 11. That is the kick-off to Lobsterfest which is an event raising money for the Lethbridge Legion General Stewart Branch, the Royal Canadian Airforce Association 702 Wing and the 11 Squadron Royal Canadian Air Cadets along with a few other organizations. Wayne King, the past president of the 702 Wing, says this is a vital event to raise funds for.
“Some of the funds will go to provide the ongoing administrative costs of both the 702 Wing and the Legion. But, it also will contribute to the continuation of the cadet program in the city. In addition to that we do support other local youth activities, the Salvation Army, and other community groups as well.”
Lobsterfest has been running for well over 30 years now and the event had to be postponed for the past few years due to the pandemic. At the height of the event, King states it held upwards of over 400 guests.
This year, close to 200 guests will be permitted.
King says tickets are now completely sold out for Lobsterfest.
