Long Beach's annual Original Lobster Festival is upon us, an event that always sells out and is always a complete bacchanal. No, the lobsters are not local (they're from Maine), but there's butter dippin' sauce, so no one cares. The ticket price itself does not include the feast — check the website for different packages if you'd like to deal with that ahead of time. You can get either a 1.25- or 2.25-pound lobster, along with coleslaw, a roll, watermelon, lemons and the aforementioned dippin' sauce. There are food trucks at the festival selling non-crustacean foods too, plus kids' activities and live music.
