Work it, girl.
In this one-of-a-kind pageant, the winning crab will waddle down a flower-adorned runway to the tune of the event's theme song "Here It Comes, Miss Crustacean" and go home a title winner. Plus, she will capture the coveted Cucumber Rind Cup, a large trophy with a cucumber inside that represents a year's supply of food for the winner.
The competition begins at 1 p.m. at the 6th Street beach.
The Miss Crustacean pageant will be followed by hermit crab races with about 150 crabathletes showcasing their athletic abilities.
If you think your hermit crab has what it takes to crawl away a winner, call 609-525-9300 and register. Entry is free.
