August 01, 2002|By Lori Sears

Love crabs? The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels has got just your thing this weekend. The museum presents its annual "Crab Days" celebration, a two-day festival filled with crab delicacies, crab races, crab-catching demonstrations and more, for all crab-craving types.

For the crab-eaters: Indulge in crab cakes, soft-shell crabs, steamed crabs, crab soup and lots more.

For the crab-curious: Watch local watermen display their crab-netting skills and make crab pots.

For the crab-challenged: Learn to pick crab meat and get tips from local crab pickers.

For the younger crab set: Climb inside a human-sized crab pot, play crab bean bag toss and go crabbing.

For the sideline crab coaches: Cheer on your speedy crab from home (or one available at the museum) at the crab races.

For the anti-crab crowd: Chomp on hot dogs, fries, corn-on-the-cob, ice cream and other baked goods.

"Crab Days 2002" runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, Mill Street, St. Michaels. Festival and museum admission is $8.50; $7.50 seniors; $4 ages 6-17; free for ages under 6. Call 410-745-2916.
