The Crab is King at this one-of-a-kind event that’s fun for the whole family! Along with the Crustacean 500 race, participants may enter the Miss Curvaceous Crustacean Beauty Pageant.  At the pageant, hermit crabs are presented in uniquely-decorated displays and judged on beauty and creativity.  Hermit crab owners are encouraged to build a unique display for their crab.  Past winners have included themed entries like “Spider Crab,” “Hermit the Hulk,” “Beauty and the Crab,” and “Pirates of the Crabibbean!”  Approximately 300 hermit crabs participate in the Mid-Atlantic Hermit Crab Challenge each year.  Many of these come from out of state just to be with us! ALL participants receive a medal for being a part of this unique event. There are no fees for entering.
