A bucket full of crabs = a whole lotta fun? In St. Croix the answer would be yes!
Tito and Sue run Crab Races at the Divi once a week and it’s a surprisingly good time!
We arrived that evening and paid $2 each for a crab, assigning them a winning (or so we thought) name for the event. Michael Johnson, Crab-tastrophe, Send Momma Home (don’t ask…) and Pinch Me all seemed strong and ready for the race.
Within a minute or two, we had our first winner. There were several heats, and the winner of each heat then competed for the Grand Prize. Unfortunately Michael Johnson, Crab-tastrophe, Send Momma Home (don’t ask…) and Pinch Me did not win, or actually even place, so we didn’t win any of the great prizes offered from local establishments such as locally made jewelry, dinner or a trip for two to Buck Island, but we had a great time anyway.
And, while enjoying the races, enjoyed a number of delicious Cruzan Confusions masterfully concocted by the crew at the Divi Resort. Mmmm. good.
Have you enjoyed the Crab Races in St. Croix yet?
