Food, Family and Fun at the 7th Annual Lobsterfest
We attended as a guest of Culinary Promotions
Families from all over Southern California came together over the weekend at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort for the 7th Annual Lobsterfest. Hundreds of fresh lobsters were flown in from Maine the morning of the event, and then boiled fresh before being served to guests.
The Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is one of our favorite places to visit during the summer, and Lobsterfest was by far one of our favorite events at the majestic waterfront resort. The event kicked-off with Lido the Lobster greeting our family, and I was able to capture keepsake photos of our children with the adorable lobster. Once we walked into the event the air was filled with music; lobsters were boiling, and families were creating long-lasting memories together while basking in the beautiful water views.
We found a table together in the VIP area where we were invited to savor the fresh flavors of all-you-can-eat lobster. Along with unlimited freshly cooked Maine lobster, we had a variety of other dishes to enjoy including steak, potatoes, salad, and corn.
Throughout the festival, children were dancing to the music, and making new friends. The event wasn’t just about having fun and eating amazing food but also about giving back to our community. Proceeds from the event went to benefit Make-a-Wish Foundation Orange County and The Inland Empire who helps to grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Our family spent the entire afternoon enjoying food and good company at the event before ending the day by walking around Newport Dunes while watching the beautiful sunset. The Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort has many fantastic family events like Lobsterfest throughout the year.
