The lobsters have landed in Plymouth
OCES is one of the sponsors of the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce “Lobster Crawl”, a major public arts, tourism, and charitable event. The Lobster Crawl will feature the installation of about 30 unique structures measuring 5 feet high that will be on display throughout Plymouth. On July 18 the lobsters’ long “swim” from Nebraska to Plymouth ended in a rousing welcome on the Plymouth waterfront.
The fiberglass structures will be custom designed and hand painted by local artists. The Chamber is hoping to have the lobsters in place by Aug. 27, just in time for the Downtown Plymouth Waterfront Festival. Read more.
