Seafood in Cambridge

Come to Cambridge for a dish of the Chesapeake Bay's most famous inhabitants, crabs, and enjoy other creatures from the sea, including fish and clams, at the 26th annual Seafood Feast-i-val. The seafood will be supplemented with fruit, vegetables and soft drinks. The food is all-you-can-eat with admission except for beer, which is sold by the cup. And don't miss the antique cars and fire apparatus, and listen to Golden Touch, a local band specializing in songs from the 1950s, '60s and '70s.

Children can get their faces painted, get a balloon animal and watch a clowns performance. Also available is a tank, filledwith sea life from the bay, where children can touch the creatures.
