Stone Crab and Seafood Festival Is Saturday in Fort Lauderdale

It's been said that seafood in South Florida isn't as big a draw for the locals as it is for out-of-towners, a topic that can be debated as you are pulling apart pieces of crab leg at the Stone Crab and Seafood Festival this Saturday on the lawn of the Riverside Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.

There's no admission to the all-ages festival -- which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. -- but you'll want to bring cash to purchase dishes offered by local restaurants like Mango's Restaurant and Lounge and Bimini Boatyard.
