St. Marks, FL - St. Marks got crabby over the weekend with the St. Marks Stone Crab Festival. This annual celebration kicks off the beginning of Stone Crab season.
The panhandle community gathered to celebrate the special crab that is praised for its large meat filled claws.
The claws are considered both a delicacy and a renewable food source. (The crabs are collected by fisherman, harvested for their claws and thrown back to the sea, preventing any harm)
The event featured live music, vendors, a kid's area, car show, and of course lots of seafood.
The event was free to attend and lasted from 10am to 6pm.
