CRISFIELD, Md. (AP) — The 35th Annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is set for Crisfield.
The seafood festival is scheduled for Wednesday at Somers Cove Marina. The event is also known as a big draw for Maryland politicians in election years. Last year’s event drew appearances from Gov. Martin O’Malley and his opponent, former Gov. Robert Ehrlich, as well as scores of other politicians. But because this year’s event isn’t happening in an election year, it’s unlikely to draw as many politicians.
The outdoor all-you-can-eat event features crabs, clams, fish, corn on the cob and watermelon.
The event is named in honor of Crisfield native J. Millard Tawes, who was governor from 1959 to 1967.
