Hermit crab racing in San Carlos Park

10:20 AM, Aug 28, 2018

Every Thursday night, the Tiki Bar in San Carlos Park (18051 S Tamiami Trl., Fort Myers, Florida 33908) behind the Days Inn hosts hermit crab races.

The weekly event attracts all ages from seniors to college students who gather around a circular table and select a crab from the dozens of painted shells ranging from Superman to soccer balls. Once they find their pick, they then put a “suggested donation” of $5 in the pot and their crab goes into the ring. The first ten crabs to cross the blue finish line go into a second race. The top winners from the second round can earn participants free drinks and gift cards to the Tiki Bar. It’s rowdy, but all in good fun. They hold about four races each Thursday night.
