Lobster Boil Time! ♥

Coming up this Saturday in my hometown of Wisconsin in beautiful Fontana Lake, is the best yearly Lobster Boil and Steak Fry! I also have a recipe for your own lobster boil you can do at home! ♥

Here is the link for the Lobster Boil  The Big Foot Lion’s Club will host it’s 31st annual Lobster Boil and Steak Fry on Saturday, July 26th, 2014. This is the areas most popular fund-raiser. I call it “The Biggest Social Event in Fontana”. People come to Fontana this weekend just for the “Lobster Boil” to see old friends and have a great time. The event takes place in Fontana’s Reid park right on the lakefront. This is a beautiful place to have such an event. They start at noon on Saturday with lunch fare being served (Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and soda). This is a great place for family and friends to gather throughout the day as they have live music all day long. Starting at noon we have “Al’s Blues band”. At 3:00 “Mr.Myers band” starts and at 7:00 the “Eddie Butts band” starts and plays until 11:30. In between bands and at breaks we have the band “Rock Central” playing. Continuous music all day long from noon till 11:30 at night. They have a children’s area set up by Life Of The Party with fun things for the kids. They have a beer tent serving Miller products and wine coolers. New last year they served white and red wine, which was a huge success and they will have it again this year. New this year to the line up in the beer tent will be “Leinenkugel’s” Summer Shandi and a chance to meet one of the Leinenkugel brothers. Serving time for dinner starts at 2pm and is served until 9pm. They offer a drive through service at the park house from 2pm until 8pm. Last year they sold over 2400 dinners with 400 of those being sold at the drive through.   $34.00 for Lobster and $22.00 for Steak. 100% of the money raised at our fundraisers goes back to the public through their contributions.
