Join us February 21 for the 4th annual Hermit Crab Races at the VFW Post 5803 in Van Wert. This year’s theme is Beers Around the World!
Doors will open at 6:00 for food and drink. Racing begins at 7:00. Admission is free and open to the public.
Place a bet on your favorite crab, then watch as he (or she) competes to be the first to make it across the finish line. There are 12 races in all for the evening with 5 crabs in each race, so if your favorite doesn’t pay off on the first go ’round, try again or choose a new favorite for the next race. For $5 you can name a crab during the races. If your crab wins the race and you are present, you will double your money, winning $10.
The VFW Post is located at 111 N. Shannon Street.
