Crack open your first lobster claw of the season this Memorial Day Weekend at our 24th annual Lobster Days.
Fresh lobster will be served Saturday through Monday under our open-air Boat Shed along the beautiful Mystic River. The weekend’s festivities also feature a touch tank filled with all sorts of sea creatures (courtesy of Mystic Aquarium – thanks, neighbor!), talks about the lobstering industry, games on the Village Green, lobster story time in the Children’s Museum, book signings in the Museum Store and much, much more.
And in remembrance of those that have served, join us for Decoration Day Monday, May 25, from 12 – 1 p.m. in the Greenmanville Church for a powerful ceremony dedicated to the memory of those lost in the Civil War. A reverent service led by costumed citizens of 1876 Greenmanville will begin at noon. Immediately following the service, join in a procession for the playing of taps and a wreath laying upon the Mystic River.
No matter your plans this holiday, may your weekend be filled with fun, sun and warm memories. And if you want it to be filled with lobster, well, you know where to go.
