The Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre is hosting CrabFest on Friday, Oct. 2.

From 6-9 p.m. On the pier you can get a ticket for one of the 300 crabs that will be offered at $25 per plate.

“Come and crack a crab with us,” said organizers.

There are only 300 crabs on offer, so get your tickets early if you want to be tucking into some crab meat. Beer and wine will also be available.

The event is still looking for volunteers to help set up, serve and clean up, so contact the Maritime Centre at 250-746-4955 if you’re interested in lending a hand.

The event will serve as the kickoff of the Pier Restoration Fundraising Drive.
